Absolutely essential for anyone who is Irish or wants to understand us, this is a wild collection of off-the-wall phrases used in literature, drama, poetry, newspaper journalism and everyday speech. You'd sort of know what the word 'ullagoning' meant if you came across it in a sentence - somebody moaning and groaning and droning on - because it's onomatopoeic, but it's good to have it defined. And you might know what a Yahoo was but again it's good to be able to put it in context, from Dean Swift to Sean O'Casey and beyond. Review by Maeve Binchy, author of 'Tara Road', 'Evening Class' and 'The Glass Lake'. (Kirkus UK)
