It is 1833, and change is coming to rural County Donegal, Ireland. A tight-knit group of neighbors gathers regularly at an Irish-language hedge school to study classics of Greek and Latin literature.  A prodigal son of their own returns from Dublin with two British army engineers who have been tasked with mapping the country, drawing new borders, and translating local place names into the King’s English. Languages and histories collide, kindling romance and inciting violence. A modern classic from an Irish master, Translations explores the relationship between how we speak, who we are, and whom we love.
