Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

The first collection of twelve humorous Irish short stories featuring Old Seamus, the Seanachie – a lovable rogue from the fictional Donegal village of Ardnakil – whose amusing yarns and escapades are narrated by his old friend and regular visitor, Jamie. These stories were first published in the popular Irish weekly magazine from Wexford, 'Ireland's Own'.'

A Seanachie is an Irish storyteller and Seamus is a great example of a storyteller. His storytelling covers many eras of recent Irish history – from his own childhood to modern times, and he often manages to get up to great antics in his attempts to help his friends out. The fire is lit and the smell of burning turf fills the air, the Guinness is cold, his pipe is going and Seamus is ready to tell another few yarns!

There's the 'Tale of a Teacup' – an Irish American visitor wins his Irish colleen, but did he really get such a bargain? In 'The Cuckoo Clock' a woman decides to put right a family wrong, but now she can never reveal the secret. Despite the interference of an evil thorn bush, 'The Parish Outing' has a most satisfactory outcome and in 'The Mill Pool' an habitual coward suddenly finds himself a local hero. And how come Seamus is allowed to fish the Hon. Marjorie Fitzpatrick's precious trout stream, without fear of any consequences?

Seamus is as crafty as they come, is not averse to 'taking the law into his own hands', can keep a secret for many years and is a willing nemesis to any who wish harm to the innocent. Seamus O'Hare, Donegal's answer to Robin Hood!

5.0 su 5 stelle Irish tales by a master storyteller from Northern Ireland 28 gennaio 2012
Di G. Polley - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
If you've never been to Ireland or Northern Ireland, once you read these 12 tales by Northern Irish writer Gerry McCullough, you will want to go. In fact, you will likely want to go to Donegal, find a pub and wait for a seanachie (Irish storyteller) to begin spinning his tales.

"Whenever I can," the narrator begins, "I like to spend a week, or even a long weekend, i Ardnakil, the small Donegal village where I used to come to visit my grandparents -- too many years ago. And when I'm there, I take the opportunity to call in on old Seamus O'Hare. Seamus taught me everything I know about fishing,poaching, and the countryside." With that, I knew I was in for a very enjoyable experience.

Seamus O'Hare may be an irresistible old rogue, but he's the kind people love to sit and listen to for hours on end whenever the opportunity presents itself. I'll be looking old Seamus up from now on. I hope Gerry McCullough has another collection of these charming tales coming out one of these days. They're irresistible.

5.0 su 5 stelle The word "delightful" kept coming to mind. 20 maggio 2012

What an enjoyable read! I expected to like these tales from Ireland. What I didn't expect was the sheer delight I felt reading them. They are so well written that you can hear the soft Irish brogue of the narrator; and, it's never over the top... or under, for that matter. Lovely imagery, funny stories, sad and touching stories, it was a pure pleasure to read through. This is one I'll keep on my Kindle for those times when I want something to read to make me smile. Gerry McCullough is a most talented writer who brought a warm, gentle, humorous Ireland to life for me. Loved this collection!

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Irish story telling 10 settembre 2015
Di Skadi Winter - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
Gerry McCullough - what can I say? Old Seamus - the old Irish man, a clay pipe and a drink in his hands, wrinkles and white hair, the Seanachie, the storyteller. Donegal - I've never been there but, believe me, Gerry takes you there! The Irish, engulfed in an air of Celtic spirit and heritage, have found a true representative of their storytelling culture in Gerry McCullough!. I am German and an avid reader (of course), used to literature of Goethe, Schiller, Tolstoy, Shakespeare ...and all :) Reading old Seamus' stories just take me by the hand and teach me what life is all about. Gerry's language and imagination is heart warming, vivid, funny, at times sad - just as Irish history and storytelling is. Old Seamus 'doesn't allow to be ordered around or to be told what to do. He has his own ideas about right and wrong'. Isn't that a characteristic we all carry within us? And the narrator Jamie, so much enjoying his 'time-out' from his busy city job, isn't he one who slumbers in the heart and desire of all of us? Jamie is me, is us readers, listening to stories of wit, heart and a time long gone by. Times of fairies, leprechauns, mist, waves of the Atlantic crushing against the Irish coast - times of storytelling. Irish great story telling. I've read the first book about Seamus in one night - believe it or not! Gerry McCullough is just what the reader expects of an Irish writer - a wink from old Seamus, Old Seamus and Jamie make me smile, make me feel cosy, make me feel the great Irish spirit of writers. Gerry, I'm so glad I've found your books. Donegal is one place I'd love to go to! I'm sure, I'll find some old Seamus's there. Write on!

5.0 su 5 stelle A bit of Irish blarney 4 febbraio 2012
Di tee gee - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Picture the scene of an old fashioned Irish pub with a peat fire roaring with life. The smoke from the burning peat spilling over anyone close enough. Sitting in the corner in an old chair is The Seanachie - storyteller. Maybe a clay pipe in his hand but definitely a drink in the other.
So sets the scene in my mind of The Seanachie by Gerry McCullough. This magnificent storyteller has done it again. Each individual story has it's own Gaelic charm, so much so that it hard to choose a favourite. I can thoroughly recommend these lovely stories and happy to give them a five star rating.
