Overview

As a schoolgirl Rosita Boland had-in common with all Irish children-a map of Ireland. Iconic in its pinks, greens and yellows, the map was a staple of Irish schoolhouses. Yet, as she matured, so did her country. With affection and curiosity, she followed her old map on a tour like no other. In 32 essays, Rosita finds-in each county? tales so unusual that they could only be ‘of Ireland.' From the site a monkey crash-landed a B-17 to Europe’s most westerly weather station to the Tayto factory in Armagh, here is an engaging exploration of a mad and marvelous land.
