A Thig ná Tit Orm

This autobiography is prescribed for the Leaving Certificate Irish course. Full of stories from his life, particularly during the 1950s and 1960s, musician Maidhc Dainín Ó Sé’s entertaining memoir provides insights into both his own life and the times in general. Maidhc, like many others, emigrated, first to London to work for a year and then to Chicago in the United States where he spent 10 years. He married in Chicago to Caitlín and his first two children were born there. Wanting to rear their children in Ireland, they returned to Carrachán in 1969 and Maidhc says it was the best decision he ever made.

This is a enjoyable course book that should be read in conjunction with CJ Fallon’s accompanying and detailed notes: Diarmuid Ó Tuama, A Thig Ná Tit Orm: Achoimre agus Nótaí.
