Forget the boring stuff you learned in school. Here’s the REAL skinny on Irish history.
Invasions, Emergencies, one Big Rising, all sorts of Troubles; the Siege of Limerick (continuing), Paddy of the Snakes, Niall of the Nine Hostages, The Big Fella, The Long Fella, Aer Lingus and the Flight of the Earls, Daniel O’Connell, Wolfe Tone and other singers, Gun-running at Howth, Wind-surfing at Lahinch; the IRB, the IRA, the EEC, the GAA, the Celtic Tiger, RIP.
With illustrations that put the Book of Kells in the ha’penny place.
'the 10th book in O’Brien’s best-selling Feckin’ series'
'like its forerunners it’s a riot'
