Who We Are is a collection of essays on the cultural aspects of Ireland that have appeared in The Irish Daily Mail from 2007 to 2010. The contributors include Ireland's most celebrated novelists, journalists, academics, philosophers, and poets, including: Mark Little, Nell McCafferty, Colum McCann, Richard Corrigan, Peter Cunningham, Susan O'Keeffe, Dermot Bolger, Tom Doorley, Joseph O'Connor, and Tom McGurk. Who We Are takes the reader on a journey across the literary landscape. The book confronts and delves into all areas that engage and define the very essence of the Irish: the complex relationship with the Church, the short-lived love affair with the Celtic Tiger, the importance of family, the power of politics, the love of the land, and the magnetic pull of sporting heroes. At times angry, at times humorous, poignant, reflective, and heart-warming, these compelling, thought-provoking, beautifully-written essays are a snapshot of contemporary Irish culture.
