HASH(0x9d938708) out of 5 stars Very enjoyable book with stuff to learn about ireland Oct. 10 2009
By Inisheer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a collection of funny,unusual facts about Ireland that's a little bit different. There's a great section of quotes about Irelend that I've never seen anywhere else, all kinds of facts I didn't know about Irish culture - stuff about strange customs they have of bumping a baby's head on the floor and superstitions about fairies and the like - that really show how different the history and viewpoint are there than in the U.S. There are also alot of little stories from Irish newspapers recently that are very quirky and cool. Also good chapters about the meaning of "craic" and celtic knot designs. A really enjoyable read if you like Ireland.

HASH(0x9ddacf9c) out of 5 stars A Must Read Feb. 1 2010
By Nicola Farman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Robert Sullivan's book is riveting. It's a rare treat to find a book as compelling and as interestingly written. Clearly no stranger to Ireland, Sullivan's text grabs the reader and suddenly, hours have gone by. I highly recommend this book for all who are Irish, those who love all things Irish, or just wish they were Irish! Tremendous fun.

HASH(0x9d92aac8) out of 5 stars Not Just for the Green of Heart Oct. 20 2009
By T. O'shea - Published on
Format: Paperback
One of the most informative books I have read. Being a professor in Irish literature, I was skeptical about reading this book. A dear friend of mine suggested it to me and it came with rave reviews. I gave it a whirl and I was blown away. This book is incredible and highly recommend it!
HASH(0x9d92a5d0) out of 5 stars Those Wild and Crazy Irishmen! Dec 24 2009
By Susan - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book covers all things Irish--the magical, mystical and the oh so quirky. It's a slim volume, perfect for carrying around in my shoulder bag. I pull it out and read a little when I'm waiting for, say, the train or the dentist. The fun facts make me laugh outloud.
HASH(0x9d92ab88) out of 5 stars Great bok for lovers of Irish trivia May 22 2013

Of which I am one. I have accumulated my own store of Irish facts and fiction and have visited my father's homeland many times. So I can attest to the accuracy of, of not all the facts, then certainly the Irish spirit in this charming book.
