Overview

The Encyclopedia of Ireland is the most comprehensive book to date on all aspects of Irish life, culture, and history. It encompasses the whole of Ireland-its islands and seas, its people both home and abroad-and provides fascinating facts about subjects from prehistory to the present."A hard-to-put-down book. It sits by my elbow making it difficult for me to write these words. I want to get back to it, to go from page to page, topic to topic. . . . You might be tempted to travel from front to back, stopping to feast here and there, but don't treat it like a book. It is a treasure. Better to dip and meander. . . . This is a book that will settle many an argument and, I hope, send many a reader off on a journey."-Frank McCourt
