More trivia about Ireland than you ever needed to know!

Distract yourself from doom-and-gloom with useless information: guaranteed to make you a hit at parties or gatherings of more than one person!

This book contains jewels like the following:

  • During the first half of the nineteenth century, the average number of CHILDREN per household in Ireland was 10.
  • An ancient Irish marriage ritual called ‘handfasting’, involved tying a rope between the newlyweds’ wrists for 366 days. It is said that this is where the expression ‘TYING THE KNOT’ originated.

Colin Murphy is the author of The Most Famous Irish People You’ve Never Heard Of and co-author of the bestselling ‘Feckin’ collection (The O’Brien Press). His début historical novel Boycott (Brandon) was published in 2012 to great acclaim. 

Donal O'Dea is a senior Art Director at one of Ireland’s leading advertising agencies.
