Unfortunately, I was only given up to five stars to rate this book. However, it deserves at least 6 stars!!! It is possibly the most comprehensive collection ever of Irish culture, folklore , language and trivia. It is an essential addition to all bookshelves and will be enjoyed by everyone - not just the Irish. It is also a must for folklorists, linguists, historians and trivia fanatics. Anyone who appreciates this book is guaranteed to enjoy the following more concise companions : Bernard Share's "Slanguage",
Paddy Sammon's "Greenspeak", Thornton B. Edwards "Irish! A Dictionary of words beginning with the word'Irish'" and Byrne's "Dictionary of Irish Local History". All of these titles are available through Amazon.

I am delighted with this book.
It contains a huge selection of entries about Ireland,
from mythology to poetry to history to politics, etc.
Anyone interested in Ireland and Irish people will
love this book. I look at it every day ! .
