Wonders of the Wake - Kevin Toolis
From the ancient Neolithic graves on Achill Island on the Atlantic seaboard, to the plains of Troy and Homer’s Iliad, to yesterday’s funeral, the Irish Wake still teaches us all how to live, love and die. The Wonders of the Wake in bardic poetry celebrates the craic, the joy, and the haunting lament of a traditional Irish Wake. Wonders of the Wake is based on acclaimed BAFTA winning writer Kevin Toolis’ bestselling book My Father's Wake: How the Irish Teach Us to Live, Love and Die.
