Notice a pattern in the trans media/e-celeb of self-promotion and the optics of capitalist visibility norms?

Other than you-know-who, I can’t think of a ‘trans is about me-memoir’ not written by a predictable cadre of typified prominence and publicity gouging: white, educated, abled trans feminine individuals are totally hypocritical about the mantra rubric of ‘centring other voices’ whilst plying the means of production with the index of ego.

Kennys Book Parcels

Quite possibly my favorite bookshop ever is Kennys, in Galway, Ireland. While I can’t visit there as often as I’d like — I’ve been a regular patron since the early 1990s — I still can get a semblance of the joyful experience of perusing the ink-soaked shelves via their glorious book parcel service.

The process works with blissful ease and simplicity: in cooperative discussion with longtime owner, and tome-clairvoyant Des Kenny, you give him a sense of your tastes according to subject and topic; a budget per parcel package; and a time-schedule for delivery frequency.

One doesn’t need to be exceedingly exact in specificity: in fact, I advise against it. Instead, it’s better to be somewhat vague, more gesture than point, and trust in Des’s superb judgement . . . with the expectations that surprises will come and tastes will be challenged. The proper thrill is in the discovered surprises every time you open up the delivered parcel, posted from Galway, filled with the unmistakable brown paper scents and twine of Connemara.

And if you happen not to like a book — which has happened maybe once or twice in my years of pleasurable exchanges with him — then returns are accepted.

As for me as one example, and unsurprising given my scholarly specialities, I’ve listed my interests as Irish women’s history; folklore and mythology; the Celtic Revival; Irish language literature and poetry; and harp music. I like both academic works, as well as local historians and small-press monographs; mainstream Irish fiction as well as experimental chapbooks.

What Des does with your information is to devote his time, and exceedingly keen eye, to watch for items that fall within your guidance — including recent publications as well as those rare, out of print, and often unheard of titles that pass through his doors almost daily. It’s exactly like having your own professional book scout on the constant lookout, catering to however niche your needs are! (And my niches have nooks within nooks!)

His powers of purchase and intuitive sense of his client’s needs border on the paranormal. And you never know what’s quite in store with every arrival.

Appropriately enough, and far better craic than going out for beers (of whatever neon green hue), my latest parcel arrived yesterday and I spent an evening diving in!

I’m especially thankful in how Des’s efforts keep me up to date with contemporary publications in the Irish language, as well as tracking down classic works that are very difficult to find. Every parcel is handpicked, with thoughtful sensitivity and a bit of literary mischief, and guaranteed to delight with the uncertainty of a box full of Irish books always guarantees.

Pssst. St Patrick was Welsh

Indeed, according to debated tradition, the shamrock evangelist was a son of Wales from Roman ancestry, but known the world over as Ireland’s Patron Saint. Join RTÉ as they explore Banwen in the Welsh Valleys (Neath Port Talbot): the village which claims to be St Patrick’s birthplace.

Programme on @RTENationwide — 7pm this evening on @RTEOne.

Also, he likely didn’t have a beard, given Roman preferences for being clean-shaven; but more importantly his hagiography should remind us all of the plights that refugees endure.

The Black Book of Camarthen

Fascinating lore and images provided by the National Library of Wales (Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru):

“Legend has it there is a drowned land beneath the sea in Cardigan Bay. Known as Cantre’r Gwaelod [The Sunken Hundred], in the earliest version of the legend, in The Black Book of Carmarthen, the land is known as Maes Gwyddno.

The land of Cantre’r Gwaelod was said to be very fertile, due to the fact that it was low lying land which was protected from the sea at high tide by a dyke with sets of sluice gates.


As the legend continues… on a stormy night, a feast was held at the King, Gwyddno Garanhir‘s palace. (See also Chwedl Taliesin  [Ystoria Taliesin / Hanes Taliesin]  “The Tale of Taliesin“).

The watchman, Seithenyn, got a little (a lot) drunk and fell asleep, forgetting to shut the gates.

The gates were left open, and the sea rushed in flooding the land of Cantre’r Gwaelod. The king Gwyddno Garanhir and some of his court are said to have fled to safety along Sarn Cynfelyn.

Nautical chart by Lewis Morris (1701-1765) of Aberystwyth Bae, originally from Ynys Môn.


It’s said that on still days you can still hear the bells of Cantre’r Gwaelod ringing beneath the waves.”

An English to Welsh Dictionary of Feminist Terms

Perhaps not so much a dictionary as a set of proposals for etymological changes — ones of flexibility and inclusion — Sarah Hudis presents some very interesting adaptations of contemporary feminist theory into the syntax and vocabulary of Welsh.

Working from the self-narratalogical premise of hunaniaeth [identity], Hudis demonstrates that Welsh can accommodate adjustable modes of gender, selfhood, and interpersonal communication — in particular, by allowing for non-binary modes and moods of grammar. Also useful, shes provides cognates for important theoretical terms such as intersectionality for feminist writing in Welsh. As scholars have done in other languages such as Japanese, Hudis breaks down and deconstructs the sexist roots (and implicit biases) in the terms for woman (via Irigaray, natch) — and suggests alternatives. She describes her methodology in this way:

“This dictionary seeks to address the lack of a Welsh feminist vocabulary, proposing alternative uses of the Welsh language which allow for expression beyond a binary of male/female, and for the articulation of a uniquely Welsh feminist identity”.
