“Leabhar tábhachtach é seo a chuireann go mór le tuiscint an phobail agus scoláirí an bhéaloidis ar sheasamh Pheig Sayers i measc seanchaithe agus scéalaithe na hÉireann lena linn. Seo againn […] na taifeadtaí a rinne an BBC agus Radio Éireann ar thrí ócáid dhifriúla, an BBC ar 12 Lúnasa 1947, Radio Éireann ar 6-7 Samhain 1947 agus Radio Éireann arís i 1953, i dtreo dheireadh na bliana ní foláir i ndiaidh thréigean an Bhlascaoid Mhóir i mí na Samhna na bliana céanna. Tá téacs iomlán na dtaifeadtaí ó Pheig trascríofa sa leabhar seo agus tá ann chomh maith réamhrá cuimsitheach, colgaiseach, báidhiúil leis an Ollamh Bo Almqvist.

Tá nótaí ar thrascríobh na dtaifeadtaí, tráchtaireacht ar na míreanna ar fad a glacadh ó Pheig, nótaí scolártha mar agús leis an réamhrá, noda agus liosta foinsí gan trácht ar shraith de léaráidí agus de ghrianghraif, mar atá Peig trí shúile ealaíontóiri.”

Giota as léirmheas an-chuimsitheach le Liam Ó Dochartaigh ar an leabhar, a foilsíodh in Béaloideas 2010.

Following on from the warm reception to Peig Sayers vol 2 (Níl Deireadh Ráite / Not the Final Word) in autumn 2020, New Island is delighted to re-issue vol 1, first published in 2009.

Peig Sayers was one of the most renowned storytellers in the Irish tradition. Born in 1873 in Baile an Bhiocáire, Dún Chaoin, County Kerry, Peig married into the Great Blasket where her fame as a storyteller began.
Peig’s recollections were never written down but dictated to others, and in the process often edited or shortened. As a result they often became the object of satire, such as Flann O’Brien’s ‘An Béal Bocht’, and in the school book version that many generations of students were confronted with, Peig’s recollections are often the cause of unhappy memories.
Using original sound recordings from the BBC and RTÉ Archives, this book features transcriptions of Peig’s own speech, annotated and translated by Professor Bo Almqvist and Dr Pádraig Ó Héalaí. Including a link to the original audio material, now we can listen to Peig’s own voice as she tells us her stories and meet her in a way never possible before.
