At the time of the famine, Irish was the language of everyday life, of love-making, grief and sorrow, of farming, fighting and joking. Today, the language is the daily concern of a few, and an inconvenience for many. Most of us would like to speak more, but we're either short on time or too traumatised by our school experiences to strike out in search of the gra. Michael McCaughan was one such person. Curious but too busy and too tired, slightly embarrassed by his ability to speak Spanish more fluently than his national language - until, about to turn 50, he decided it was time to put learning Irish at the top of his bucket list. He hasn't looked back since. Packed with anecdotes and exercises, An Bhfuil Cead Agam? is at once the story of McCaughan's journey through the Irish language - the ups and downs, the breakthroughs and setbacks - and a guide for others anxious to follow in his footsteps.

Three Things About Elsie
There are three things you should know about Elsie.
The first thing is that she’s my best friend.

The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better.
And the third thing… might take a little bit more explaining.

84-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light; and, if the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died sixty years ago?

From the author of THE TROUBLE WITH GOATS AND SHEEP, this book will teach you many things, but here are three of them:

1) The fine threads of humanity will connect us all forever.
2) There is so very much more to anyone than the worst thing they have ever done.
3) Even the smallest life can leave the loudest echo.
