Shortlisted as the Best Irish-Published Book of the Year at the 2013 Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards

The members of the Irish Countrywomen's Association have a saying: `Nil aon tintean mar do thintean fein' (there's no hearth like your own hearth) and when all is said and done what is more important than home and family?

In their fantastic new book, hundreds of Irish women from the ICA share their practical tips, short-cuts, and precious first-hand experience on how to make a house a home.

Whether you are looking for a tip to remove a stain from your dress, or a quiet word of wisdom on marital harmony; a how-to for the garden, or inspiration for a home-made gift: you know you can trust the ICA's advice to be practical, down-to-earth and achievable.

Running a home is an important job. It demands the organisational skills of a project manager, the budgeting of an accountant, a myriad of cooking and cleaning skills - together with that little bit of magic which mothers always add. If you've ever wished you'd written down the clever tricks, special touches or pearls of wisdom that seemed to come naturally to your mother and grandmother, then don't reinvent the wheel: let the women of the ICA guide you through home management from beginning to end.
