‘Ráth Cairn is a social and cultural treasure which makes Co. Meath unique among the 12 counties of Leinster, for this is the only recognised Gaeltacht in the entire province … [a] timely study of the painful birth of Ráth Cairn … We are much indebted to Suzanne Pegley for this valuable study … this volume [gives] vital insight into the creation, on a Greenfield site, of a brand-new community which today offers a brilliant social and cultural blueprint that our political, cultural and community leaders can study to great advantage', Séamus Mac Gabhann, Ríocht na Midhe (2012).
