From Clery's Clock to Wanderly Wagon: Irish History You Weren't Taught At School

Kerrygold butter. The Dublin Spire. The Buntús Cainte booklet. The DeLorean sports car. All of these things are an indisputable part of Irish history, yet never quite made the school curriculum. Damian Corless uses his trademark wit to trawl through our past and capture fleeting moments on the way to modern Ireland. Old reliables like the Angelus Bell, the Aran sweater, the shillelagh and the Jack Charlton mug spring fresh surprises. This is a seriously entertaining ramble through an alternative history of Ireland that you weren’t taught at school. Also by this author: Looks Like Rain: 9,000 Years of Irish Weather
