When anyone asks me about the Irish character, I say look at the trees. Maimed, stark and misshapen, but ferociously tenacious.
From the heart of the Emerald Isle to far-flung shores across the oceans, wisdom infused with wit is a hallmark of Irish culture. This collection of quotations and anecdotes about all things Irish includes memorable words from novelists, poets, musicians, priests, politicians, and many more. Arranged according to theme— “Ferocious Irish Women,” “Religion: God Save Ireland (Because It's the Least He Could Do),” “Drink,” and “Death,” among others—The Little Green Book of Irish Wisdom
is bound to earn a hearty chuckle (and a knowing nod or two) from the Irish-loving folks in your life! (KG)
