Another 12 tales of that loveable old Irish rogue, Seamus
The second collection of twelve humorous Irish short stories featuring Old Seamus, the Seanachie Ð a lovable rogue from the fictional Donegal village of Ardnakil Ð 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 Ð 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!
These stories involve a billy goat, a horse race, a kitten and a giant cucumber. There's a wedding, a birthday and a white Christmas Ð a mixed up present, that leads to another wedding, and a rescue by the wrong man, who turns out to be the right one in the end! Romance, humour, intrigue and a glimpse into Irish life as it once used to be.
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!
