In A Little Trom and a Little Eadrom Liam O Murchú takes the reader to the Cork of his working-class boy-hood to meet such people as his Auntie Norrie, the fattest woman in the world, and Fr O'Flynn, the musical priest of his school days. There was a lot of fun during those days especially when elderly relatives died and the insurance money came in!
The author remembers with affection people with a remarkable quality of mind and spirit like the sculptor Seamus Murphy and the priest who came back from the Vietnam War to set up co-operatives in the west of Ireland.
There are also articles on Gaeltacht people and places and Liam O Murchu deals with the development of Irish as a spoken language and its introduction into everyday life.
Liam O Murchu has always been committed to helping to preserve the best of our past language and traditions and to incorporate them into the present to pass on to future generations. He has, through his very popular television show Trom agus Eadrom, helped to take the Irish language out of the classroom and into the sitting-rooms of the viewers with a little Irish as well as those fluent in it.
Liam O Murchu was a civil servant for many years until he joined RTE in 1964. He has been closely associated with Irish language and bilingual programmes such as Amuigh Faoin Spiir, Labhair Gaeilge Linn, Buntiis Cainte, Fiach, Voices from the Hidden People and Trom agus Eadrom)
