first play performed in the Irish language, sail the longest
navigable inland waterway in Europe and watch the horse racing at
Ireland's first all-weather racecourse. Listen to the memories and
tales of ordinary folk from every walk of life and find out from
them what it means to be Irish.

beguilingly illustrated with pen and ink drawings. It gives a
captivating insight into the heritage, memories and monuments that
have shaped each county in Ireland.
