Format: Paperback
As an Irish woman living in the US I found this an accurate if somewhat tongue-in- cheek guide to English as it is spoken on the Emerald Isle. It brought me right back home and I enjoyed every page. Laughing at ouselves is one of the best Irish traits and this book does it beautifully while still remaining accurate and providing useful information on phrases in common use in Ireland. It literally provides translations when necessary and explores the social context and understandings of the spoken word. An enjoyable and useful read for anyone who knows Ireland, native or visitor or anyone who ever hopes to go there .

I enjoyed reading this book. I have always been fascinated by my Irish heritage and recently have begun really delving into my family tree. I bought this book to get some insight to the very different way the Irish people speak. I plan to visit Ireland soon and now I am a bit more prepared to my interactions with the Irish
