Tocasaid 'Ain Tuirc

Duncan Gillies

A quirky, humorous and entertaining short-story cycle, featuring larger-than-life characters. Many characters recur throughout the collection, including the main charactar, An Tocasaid ('The Hogshead'), who gives the book its title.

The Irish translation of Tocasaid 'Ain Tuirc was published together with the Irish translation of Martin MacIntyre's short story collection Ath-Aithne.
