Books To Entertain And Inform About Ireland's Culture!
Try our two great original books about Irish culture.
Our brand-new story of Irish culture told by the world’s greatest conversationalists. “Unusual Irish Quotes And Quotations” is an informative and entertaining collection of quips, comments and important statements made from ancient times right down to modern Ireland.
From the introduction by author Robert Sullivan:
“I would argue that no other country on earth makes quite as strong a case for the power of written and spoken words as Ireland. This microscopic nation in the Atlantic has little economic or political clout in the world. But somehow, Ireland’s influence seems to pop up everywhere, whether you prefer to travel in the realms of high or low culture.”
