Cathal Ó Sándair was about the most popular author in the Irish language in the 1940s, '50s, and '60s, but is largely forgotten today. He mostly wrote short chapbook-sized pulp adventure stories for younger readers, across all sorts of genres. His most popular series by far was that featuring the adventures of Réics Carló, a sort of Irish Sexton Blake detective character, whose escapades often featured aspects of the fantastic.
Here are the first five adventures of Réics Carló, with their wonderful bright covers.
