It was not what I was looking for and it was not described very well. This is just quotes from famous people who happen to be Irish. I was looking for traditional toasts or limericks to say. I don't really care who said what in an interview.

I'm an addict. I admit it. I belong in a 12-step program. I have a shelf full of books of quotes, and I read them cover-to-cover. More than once, some. And Des MacHale's collections are among the best. He has a knack for distilling his quotes down to the very best. Irish Wit, Ready Wit, Ultimate Wit, and (of course) Wit -- and the rest -- are always a source of entertainment, and all highly recommended.
