This lively collection uncovers for the first time how great Irish love songs came to be, and includes engaging biographies of the songwriters and their muses.
This is for anyone who ever wondered who the ‘Galway Girl’ was, or if there was a real-life ‘Nancy Spain’. Learn the often surprising, sometimes bittersweet but always absorbing stories of the real women who inspired some of the world’s finest love songs.
