Proverbs & Sayings of Ireland; Edited by Sean Gaffney & Seamus Cashman
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
In this illustrated collection of over 1,000 proverbs and sayings from all over Ireland little escapes the barb: the priest, the drinker, the lover, Irish society, ideas, virtue and vices. But there is also humour and pride, faith and love... and the odd word of caution: To praise God is proper, but a wise man won't blackguard the devil! Enjoy a glimpse into the attitudes, morals, beliefs and philosophies of the Irish people throughout the ages. But never forget that: The person that brings a story to you will take away two from you!
'If you like proverbs you will love this book.' (Irish Independent)
'A book worth having.' (C O'Danachair, Irish University Review)
