Review:

"The original Brewer, still going strong, has always been a grand


source for myths and legends and etymological curiosities, so we expect


great things from this version, Ireland being rich in both departments.


It does not disappoint."

(Sunday Telegraph)

"Crammed with facts and amply greased with a decent supply of well-turned phrases...this book is a gem." (Scotland on Sunday)

"A serious and scholarly work that packs in an amazing quantity of information." (Times Literary Supplement)

"Has endless potential as a wet afternoon distraction." (Irish Independent)

Book Description:

A vivid and affectionate celebration of Ireland's language, lore and literature.
