Absolutely brilliant concept album. Catholicism, Irish tradition, history and culture. The themes of the songs often carry the pains and the triumphs of Irish history from the celebrated battle of Clontarf extolled in ‘Pláit agus Domhnaill’, through the Catholic persecutions of the 16th and 17th centuries, the overall suppression and poverty of the indigenous people in the 18th and 19th centuries, the Famine and then into the 20th century and the fight for freedom of Home Rule. If you love Ireland, and love Catholicism, and only buy one album during the whole of this year …… make it this one! The complete presentation which includes the CD and wonderful 116 page book costs €20 with postage nationally at €6. You can purchase ‘An Bhuatais and the Meaning of Life’ here: http://www.lorcanmacmathuna.com
