  • About this publication

    Ever wondered where the expression ‘to chance your arm’ came from? Or who was ‘Half-hanged’ MacNaghten? What Irish words originated from the Vikings? Or how much would a quarter dog (fattened by eating the bodies of the slain Irish) have set you back in the seventeenth century? A Story of Ireland: the people and events that shaped the country brings to life the Ireland of Strongbow and Sarsfield, Tone and Emmet, Pearse and Collins and a host of others in an engaging and entertaining read.
