Synopsis

‘You know it’s summer in Ireland when the rain gets warmer.’
Hal Roach

‘Come forth, Lazarus! And he came fifth and lost the job.’
James Joyce, Ulysses

‘Dublin University contains the cream of Ireland – rich and thick.’
Samuel Beckett

They say if you kiss the Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence, you’ll never again be lost for words. Maybe it’s something they put in the Guinness, maybe it’s their gift of the gab or craze for the craic, but with wits like George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde and Flann O’Brien, the Irish have a heritage of humour that’s unmatched.

This book is packed with witty one-liners that will tickle your shamrock and turn your beer green. It’s St Patrick’s Day every day with Irish Wit, to be sure.
