Forget the boring stuff you learned in school. Here's the real skinny on Irish history, including: Invasions, Emergencies, one Big Rising, all sorts of Troubles; the Siege of Limerick (continuing), Paddy of the Snakes, Niall of the Nine Hostages, The Big Fella, The Long Fella, Aer Lingus and the Flight of the Earls, Daniel O'Connell, Wolfe Tone and other singers, Gun-running at Howth, Wind-surfing at Lahinch; and, the IRB, the IRA, the EEC, the GAA, the Celtic Tiger, RIP. This title features illustrations that put the Book of Kells in the ha'penny place.
COLIN MURPHY has a great interest in all aspects of history and has written a light-hearted look at Ireland's past, entitled 'The Feckin' Book of Irish History'. With Donal O'Dea, he is the author of the bestselling 'Feckin' series, published by The O'Brien Press. For twelve years, he was the Creative Director of one of Ireland's leading advertising agencies, during which time he was involved in a huge number of national and international award-winning advertising campaigns.
