To generations of Irish students Peig Sayers, is often an object of derision. Eating Seals and Seagull’s Eggs is her story, largely. Meet Peig Sayers as you have never heard her before.

I didn't know anything about Peig Sayers before I listened to this. It leaves me curious to find out more about her. It's not an easy play. I was surprised to realize it was only a little under 45 minutes long. I find that with audio drama, without the pictures the substance is denser than with movies.
As usual with radio drama from RTÉ, you've got to download it to listen to it.
