Saolaíodh Maidhc Dainín Ó Sé i gCorca Dhuibhne. Is iad na leabhair a tháinig óna lámh is mó a thuill clú do Mhaidhc Dainín, ach ba iomaí sin bua eile a bhí léirithe aige – bua an cheoil, na filíochta, an ghrinn, an tseanchais, na cumadóireachta agus na flaithiúlachta ina measc. “Seoid náisiúnta atá imithe uainn,” a dúirt a dhlúthchara Micheál de Mórdha agus é ag labhairt ar a shochraid. Ba é an leabhar A Thig ná Tit Orm ba thúisce a d’fhógair a chumas. In 1995 cuireadh an leabhar ar shiollabas na hArdteistiméireachta in ionad Peig. Scríobh Maidhc os cionn scór leabhar eile ina dhiaidh sin, úrscéalta, gearrscéalta, leabhar filíochta agus leabhair don óige. Anocht beimid ag ceiliúradh Maidhc Dainín le caint, litríocht, ceol, rince agus amhráin le Caoimhín Ó Sé, Clíonadh Ní Shé, Aoife Ní Shé, Sean Butler, Fergus Flaherty, Tom Lynch, David Docherty agus Páidí Mhárthain.
Micheál de Mórdha, a chara dilís, Fear an Tí don oíche.

Maidhc Dainín Ó Sé, author of 22 books, was “a prolific author, a musician, a singer, a composer, a poet, a truck driver, a trade union official, a civil rights campaigner, a returned emigrant, he was the embodiment of a rural meitheal, a whole team of personae in the one body.” Irish Times.

His first book, A Thig Ná Tit Orm, was published by Coiscéim in 1987. Because of its literary merit, being widely acclaimed by Irish-language critics, A Thig Ná Tit Orm replaced Peig on the Leaving Certificate curriculum.

Tonight Dingle Lit remembers Maidhc Dainín in a special, multimedia night of film, song, talk, readings and dance featuring Mossie Scanlon accompanied by a choir of young, local singers, Dáithí Ó Sé, Caoimhín Ó Sé Clíonadh Ní Shé, Aoife Ní Shé, Sean Butler, Fergus Flaherty, Tom Lynch, David Docherty and Paidí Mharthain. The evening will be curated by his lifelong friend, who championed his literary career, broadcaster and journalist Mícheál de Mórdha.
