IRELAND: 1001 Things You Need to Know

RICHARD KILLEEN    Book Number: 85354    Product format: Hardback

No visitor to or historian of Ireland should miss the chance to read this enthralling celebration of the people, places and events which make the country unique. Richard Killeen is the author of several critically acclaimed works of Irish history and this really shows as he takes the reader on a tour of the island, uncovering its rich and surprising history, heroes and villains, legends and folklore, literary and sporting heritage, national characteristics, literature and language, food and drink, and much more. What he does best is to distil this huge trove of fact and fiction into the kind of book you can pop into your flight bag and then manage to fit in aspects of government, politics, legal systems, the army, air, navy and police forces, social organisations, ethnicities, language, educational system, national pastimes and major Irish misconceptions and then still find room for such vital stuff as the best beaches, pubs, museums, walks, sites of special importance, race courses, golf courses and much, much more. Packs a formidable amount of facts, fun and legend into its 301pp.
