Funny Christmas gift book playing on the 'History in 100 Objects' theme, also tourist market

Ireland: A tiny bit of rock on the edge of the Atlantic that's had a big influence on the world.

Our history and culture has so inveigled people so much, the whole world sort of wants to be one of us. But how much does the world really know? And if they really want to find out, what are the key things they should look out for?

In this book, Paddy Duffy presents a comic crib sheet of the history of the Emerald Isle, through the medium of the objects that best sum the country up. From The Brown Bull of Cooley to the Black Stuff, from wakes to woejus Hollywood toora loora accents, all Irish life is here in this exhaustive* list of the yokes that make us the yokes we are.

*Well, he says exhaustive. It certainly tired him out.

Including: Cows, Booze, Hedge Schools, Hollywood Accents, Tae, Johnny Logan's White Coat, a scratch card with three stars, Cidona, and Miley Byrne's Hay Bale of Infidelity.
