  • Description or summary of the book: Padraic O'Farrell gathered a rich harvest of wise sayings from the Irish countryside, the lips of great men - such as Shaw, Wilde, Synge and Swift - and the unspoilt fount of Irish folklore and legend. Whenever Irish people congregate, however long removed from a rural environment, gems of wisdom are to be heard in their conversation.This appealing new hardback edition will be popular with tourists and locals alike, who are looking for a pithy statement such as: The wrath of God has nothing on the wrath of an Irishman outbid for land, a horse or a woman. A hair on the head is worth two on the brush. The family that has no skeleton in the cupboard has buried it instead. Dead men tell no tales but there's many a thing learned in a wake-house. Put an Irishman on a spit and you'll soon have two Irish men turning him.
