Muireann ní Chíobháin

Muireann ní Chíobháin

Muireann is a children's author and performer. Although a Cork City native, she spent much of her childhood in the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht in Kerry where her father's family are from and is a proud Irish speaker. When she’s not writing books, dancing about on your TV screen or cooking up new shows or ideas, you'll find her in the sea, doodling in her sketchbook or most likely running around after her young and very energetic sons on the beaches of Tramore, Co. Waterford.

She hopes that this book will be the perfect excuse to fulfil a lifelong dream of getting a puppy and calling him Murphy!

Cá Bhfuil Puifín Beag?

Written by Gerry Daly and Erika McGann, Translated by Muireann ní Chíobháin

Tá puifín beag fiosrach ina cónaí ar Sceilg Mhichíl.
Ach níl a tuismitheoirí in ann teacht uirthi ina bpoll.
Cá bhfuil sí?
Is maith an rud é go bhfuil ainmhithe agus éanlaithe na Sceilge réidh chun cabhrú.

An Irish translation of Where Are You, Puffling?
