Well now, have you heard about how the Irish fought for Alexander the Great? Or did you know that at one time the Irish were forbidden to wear trousers? Perhaps you don't know why the Irish revere John Paul Jones or how Jack the Ripper influenced Irish 'Invincibles'. Ah then, there's many a strange tale and capricious truth hidden in the history and lore of the Green Isle that will surprise and quicken your Irish blood, whether it's a pint or only a drop! This book, with 101 curious, delightful, ironic and even outrageous tales from the Emerald Isle, is a must-have for every Irish-interest library. Illustrated throughout.
