Lucinda Sly is a historical novel from one of the great contemporary Irish language prose writers, Maidhc Dainín Ó Sé. Now celebrated poet Gabriel Fitzmaurice brings this gripping account alive in English. Based on real events that took place in Carlow in 1834-35, Lucinda Sly tells the story of Lucinda Singleton, a widowed mother who married Walter Sly, a well-to-do farmer. He was a drunkard and a brute who so abused his wife that she and her lover, their farm hand John Dempsey, conspired to murder him. They were hanged side by side in public outside Carlow Gaol on March 30, 1835. Lucinda Sly draws a vivid picture of nineteenth-century Ireland, revealing what was often a harsh and unjust society. A haunting and vibrant tale that will remain with you. Lucinda Sly was an award winner at Oireachtas na Gaeilge 2008.
