The Little Book of Ireland is a funny, fast-paced, fact-packed compendium of the sort of fascinating, frivolous and fantastic information which no one will want to be without. Full of details about the country, past and present, this volume covers such themes as wars and rebellions, food and drink, culture, transport, religion, law and of course its famous (and occasionally infamous) men and women.
A reliable reference book and a quirky guide, this can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about the people, the heritage, the secrets and the enduring fascination of this ancient country. Despite being a relatively small island on the edge of the vast Atlantic there is always something new, charming, or even bizarre to discover about the Emerald Isle – and you will find much of it here.
