Ireland is her people. But the Irish people are, in turn, formed by the magnificent combination of landscape and climate that is the island of Ireland. The country is a mixture of magnificent mountains, rolling and fertile plains and clear, unpolluted rivers and lakes. There are no extremes of heat or cold, and when the sun shines, it is a paradise. Ireland is relaxed and easy-going, not given to hurry or excess and always ready with a welcome for the stranger. 'Cead mile failte' is the traditional Gaelic greeting: a hundred thousand welcomes. 'The Beauty of Ireland' captures, in stunning photography, the unique and beautiful landscape of the country.
