The Swallow

Audio online drama for learners of the Irish language (intermediate level) - produced in 20 chapters. Written by Pól Ó Muirí.

Dónall is fed up with life on earth and sets about building himself a shuttle to escape. He warned politicians about what was in store in relation to the environment but did they listen to him? What does his girlfriend say about all of this? If he leaves, does he return?

Each chapter has a proverb as its title and its theme is woven through the chapter, in order to reinforce learning and understanding.
