Already a best-seller, this is the gripping story of Saint Patrick's youthful days and his capture by Irish raiders, his life as a slave boy in Ireland, and his dramatic escape. The first Irish graphic novel, magnificently illustrated by Tomm Moore. An Sclábhaí won a prestigious Bisto Merit Award in May 2002.
An Sclábhaí ("the slave") is an Irish-language comic written by Colmán Ó Raghallaigh, drawn by Tomm Moore, coloured by Michael McGrath, lettered by Diane O'Reilly.
It is followed by An Teachtaire ("the messenger"), in which Patrick returns to Ireland as a missionary.
