My husband and I loved this book. We read it before we went to Ireland. We took it with us and used it to refer to as we traveled...again and again. If you are going to Ireland...You need this book!

With an Mc preceding my full last name, I knew I was Irish, but that was about it. I was the classic 'Complete Idiot' when it came to Irish history and culture. Ms. Massie's book has changed all of that though. The text is an easy read with many interesting and humorous tidbits. The entire history of the Emerald Isle is included with all major occurences addressed. Anyone looking to understand the basics of their Irish roots, this is the book to start with.
