Comments

Remember how boring history lessons were at school? Well, like history itself, that's all in the past. The Feckin' Book of Irish History serves up a gansey-load of Irish history in a pint-sized, pithy, and entertaining package.

Invasions, emergencies, and all sorts of Troubles. The Sieges of Limerick, the Big Fella, the Long Fella, and lots of English Fellas. And let's not forget the IRB, IRA, EEC, GAA, BC, AD, ITGWU, and all them other initials. The Feckin' Book of Irish History is with hilarious illustrations, 'Interesting Stuff' sidebars that will educate you quickly and painlessly, and quotes from Daniel O'Connell, Charles Stewart Parnell, Oscar Wilde, and other sons o' the sod.

So grab your Guinness and get into some authentic Irish history. You don't want to have to read this stuff in a boring ol' run-o'-the mill book, now do ya?
