Fatwa by Proinsias Mac a' Bhaird


Cormac Mac Ruairí is an Irish language writer looking for readers. He comes up with a clever ploy to arouse public interest in Irish language literature, and, of course, to sell more of his own books.

However, the latest book from his pen soon draws the attention of Muslim extremists. Will anyone survive the slaughter that falls on the author 's native island? Mac a ’Bhaird takes us on a lively and adventurous journey from Dublin to Libya and from ancient Arabia to the Donegal Gaeltacht in this exciting book; and he casts a phonetic eye on the little gods of our time, in that lively polished prose which he is accustomed to practice.

Francis Baird is from Arranmore, Co. Donegal, where much of his work is inspired.  The first two novels Run an Bhonnáin (LeabharCOMHAR, 2010) and Tairngreacht (LeabharCOMHAR, 2018) were awarded first prize in the Oireachtas Literary Competition.

This work was awarded a prize for Literary Fiction in the Oireachtas Literary Competition, 2019. Sponsored by Foras na Gaeilge.
