1916 and All That: A History of Ireland from Back Then Until Right Now

by C.M. Boylan - £8.99  The History Press Ltd (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781845887490 | ISBN 10: 1845887492

‘Irish history started when people arrived on the island. At least, that is when history really got going. Before that things were rather quiet...’
So begins 1916 and all That, Ciara Boylan’s wonderfully irreverent take on the history of Ireland. It will take you from the ‘Age of the Third Best Metal’, through the struggles of Wolfe Tone (Ireland’s best-named revolutionary), right through the Celtic Tiger years, when there was pancetta and rubies for all. And then on to the present day, when there are less rubies.
And, on the way, this book is not afraid to ask the hard questions, such as: Why were walls so important for the Normans? Can you describe and explain Limerick? Is your mother enjoying the Boom this weather?
This book is a journey in itself, taking its lucky readers through the long and winding valley of history, and into the bright ocean of the future, right up to the point where the history ends.
