The novelist Seamus O'Grianna (or "Maire", to use his pen-name) spent his summers, as did many from that region, as an economic migrant in Scotland harvesting and navvying. In the first of his autobiography, Nuair a bhi me Og, O Grianna is introduced to the poetry and locale of Robbie Burns. One book and that bought. An investment in literature that was undoubtedly costly for someone costly for someone forced to work like a mule for every penny he could collect.

He went on to publish more than thirty books, most under the pseudonym "Máire," which was his mother's name.

Grianna's writing style bears a strong relationship to the Gaelic oral tradition which formed a large part of life in the Rannafast (Rann na Feirste) area of Donegal, between the two inlets of Gweedore and Gweebarra in The Rosses, where the economy was based primarily on fishing and small farming. He went on to publish more than thirty books, most under the pseudonym "Máire," which was his mother's name.

Séamus Ó Grianna, "Máire", writes marvellous irish and should be read all learners of the language, but at the same time he is not a very original story teller, which makes many of his books rather tiring reading for those who are no real aficionados. This one is a delightful exception. In his autobiographical, self-ironic depiction of a young boy's life in the Irish-speaking countryside, Séamus Ó Grianna has probably achieved more than in any other book of his. Warmly recommended.
