A Little Book of Wit, Wisdom, and Whimsy

“May the curse of Mary Malone and her nine blind illegitimate children chase you so far over the Hills of Damnation that the Lord himself can't find you with a telescope. “

The Irish are renowned for their unrivalled capacity to spin a yarn and tell a story. They have a singular gift for gab and delight in the art of conversation. Being Irish means finding both humour and insight on life's roller coaster ride of highs and lows. Indeed, the Irish narrative is chock-full of wit, fellowship and merriment, but it is, also, deeply rooted in a revolutionary past of severe hardship. There is a tremendous pride in the Irish national identity and whether those of Irish ancestry live in Ireland itself or thousands of miles away overseas, they venerate their glorious green homeland.

This volume is an Irish treasure trove of words and sentiments that entertain and inform at any and all occasions. Here are over 500 quotes that fall into the following categories: Blessings and Toasts; Drinking, Humorous and Specialty Toasts; Saint Patrick, Saint Brigid and Special Prayers; Curses, Proverbs, and Sayings; Poetry and Rhymes; He Said, She Said and Ballads and Songs.

This is a book that is inspirational, fun and ideal for every gift-giving occasion and provides readers the opportunity to revel in the wit and wisdom of the Celts.
