Cén maitheas atá inti?

Seo an freagra a thug Bryan McMahon, an scríbhneoir ó Lios Tuathail Contae Chiarraí, don cheist: “When Ireland leaped for freedom she did so in great measure from the springboard of our own language. What good is it? What good is the dawn? Or the wonder of a daisy? What good is the Song of Songs? The Book of Kells? Or the souvenirs of women? Can faith be weighed or measured in ounces, decibels or amps? Are not the most precious things in life and the mainspring of men’s actions beyond definition in terms of intrinsic value?”
Ní gá níos mó a rá. Fuaireas an sliocht seo ó mo chara Nóirín Ní Chatháin.
