The Irish Companionby Think Books (Editor)
Gallons of Guinness, massive malarkey, vast views: Ireland embraces all these, and more. Over the centuries, this green and vibrant land has established itself as one of the world’s most captivating countries, forging a legacy of huge economic and artistic value. This entry in the Companion series sweeps through the Emerald Isle, offering a look at its history, culture, myth, and folklore. There are Irish jokes, old and new, and answers to such whimsical questions as why W.B. Yeats claimed he could see fairies; just how tricky it is to kiss the Blarney Stone; and which goddess tried to reclaim Ireland for the pagan gods.
