Description: Curious about GaeLic football? Ever wonder where the myth of the Leprechauns comes from or who the Molly Maguires are? Accessible, informative, and easy to use, the Encyclopedia of Ireland is a single-volume compendium of information about the Emerald Isle -- its history, people, places, culture, heritage, and politics. An impressive list of scholars and writers have contributed clear and thoughtful entries on all aspects of the country -- including more than 300 biographies of well-known and influential Irish people throughout history; 500 historical entries, 400 geographical entries, from towns to archaeological sites, including key sightseeing attractions; 15 chronologies on various developments in Irish history; and 200 quotations on the country and their way of life -- more than 2,000 entries in all.

In-depth essays on key Irish themes comprise a unique feature of the encyclopedia, and provide the extra detail needed for a full understanding of Ireland's big picture. The selection of essay topics reflects the knowledge most interesting and valuable to readers, such as the "Troubles", tracing Irish ancestors, and the meaning of classic Irish symbols. Main entries on the nation's modern-day institutions, politics, and government add reliable information on today's Ireland and its place in a rapidly consolidating Europe. The book also places a special emphasis on the contributions of the Irish Diaspora, such as Irish Americans, to the rich cultural heritage of the country.

Containing more than 150 historical photographs, several spectacular color-photography sections, and numerous maps and tables, the Encyclopedia of Ireland is a reference work without parallel and a necessityfor everyone interested in the Emerald Isle.
