Conamara agus Boston: Tríocha Bliain Anonn agus Anall

A book about emigration and the strong ties that have been created between Connemara and Boston, America down through the years. Special attention is paid to Tomás Ó Conaire and his family from Ros Muc and the life they led on both sides of the Atlantic from the 1980s right up to the present day.

Written in 1920, premiered in Prague in 1921, and first performed in New York in 1922—garnered worldwide acclaim for its author and popularized the word robot. Mass-produced as efficient laborers to serve man, Capek’s Robots are an android product—they remember everything but think of nothing new. But the Utopian life they provide ultimately lacks meaning, and the humans they serve stop reproducing. When the Robots revolt, killing all but one of their masters, they must strain to learn the secret of self-duplication. It is not until two Robots fall in love and are christened “Adam” and “Eve” by the last surviving human that Nature emerges triumphant.
