The Irish mix wit and wisdom the way they do whiskey and water, and to the same intoxicating effect.

Irish wit is an art form that can be sage, silly, insulting, or profound, but it’s always entertaining.

The Wee Book of Irish Wit & Malarkey is a pint-sized draft of potent mirth and malarkey from Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift, Brendan Behan, and many other wags, including 'yer man' – your everyday son of the sod – on everything from love and marriage to death and dying and everything in between.

Sean McCann was a distinguished author and journalist. He wrote more than 25 books covering a wide range of subjects ranging from roses to Irish history and sport. His main hobby was rose growing, for which he was awarded many international prizes. He lived in Dublin and was the father of prize-winning author Colum McCann.

The late Paul Ryan was a lover of language, especially slang, and spent many years collecting humorous quotations, sayings, and linguistic ticks and quirks.
