This fascinating and amusing story from West Galway concerns a hackler or flax-dresser named Mánas from the Joyce Country, who has come to the coastal area on the peninsula south-west of Clifden, presumably to find work. The text is written in a quasi-phonetic orthography, based mainly on English spelling. Dr Stenson presents the original text with facing normalized text. She also provides a full linguistic introduction, translation, textual notes and glossary.
