What makes an Irish home? Is it the neatly folded wrapping paper saved for another Christmas? Or the pressure cooker that you can't throw out but you haven't used since 1987? Seamus O Conaill, author of You Know You're Irish When ..., examines the artifacts of an Irish home, from ash trays on back windowsill to the potpourri gathering dust in the `good room'. The list includes many newer objects that make our 21st century homes more Irish as ever! So, is your home as truly Irish as you think?
