From the Publisher:

A delightful gift book, to be passed from generation to generation. This book should be on the shelf of anyone with a passion for Ireland, it's people and customs.

From the Author:

Like many people of Irish descent, I have spent my life wondering about my ancestors,their personal histories and what makes me “Irish”. I feel an immediate attachment and a sense of belonging when I hear a bit of Irish music or read a phrase of Irish poetry. I look at the old photographs of my grandparents and their parents before them and wonder about their struggles to create a home and family here in America.

When I met and fell in love with my husband, it seemed only appropriate to include my Irish heritage, which I had such a strong affinity for, as part of our wedding day. This book will help you include your unique Irish spirit as part of the most important day of your life.

What I have tried to do in much of Irish Wedding Traditions is to update many of the oldest Irish wedding customs, so that they can be used in a contemporary wedding. I have also included many of the Irish wedding practices that are currently popular in Ireland, so that a couple may have many different Irish traditions to choose from when planning their wedding.
