About: This book is all that is needed in relation to the literary output of the multifaceted and multi-talented Caitlín Maude. It collects in a single volume two earlier books (‘Dánta’, 1984 and ‘Drámaiocht, agus Prós’, 1988). As well as the poems, plays and prose penned by Caitlín Maude, the book contains two important essays on her work. The first is by Tomás Mac Siomóin in the form of the foreword to the poems (pp 2-17). The second is by the editor, Ciarán Ó Coigligh and entitled ‘Léamh an Eagarthóra ar na Dánta’ (pp 83-111). Both essays are in the Irish Language.

Education with a Capital H

Full title: The Hedge Schools of Wicklow

Creator / Author: Thomas O’Rourke

Item Type / Page count: Book / 216p

When Published: 2015

Publisher / Place of Publication: Eagle Rock / Ballydoreen, Ashford, Co. Wicklow

About: Education has always been held in high regard in Ireland. So-called hedge schools preserved a link between the Bardic Schools of the Gaelic era and the introduction of the National School system in the first half of the nineteenth century. Hedge schools proliferated following the enactment of the Penal Laws and, although not necessarily located beside hedgerows, they became an unofficial system of education in their own right. In this well researched book, the author provides the historical context for hedge schools and provides a checklist of known locations of hedge schools in each barony of the county of Wicklow.
