Synopsis: With more than 5,000 original articles written by over 900 different contributors and in excess of 700 illustrations, mainly in colour, "The Encyclopaedia of Ireland" is unique. Unique in scope, in the distinction of its design and in its total commitment to quality - there is no book about Ireland remotely like it. It is the most ambitious reference work ever published about Ireland. Meticulously detailed, it is a treasure store of information, education, entertainment and enlightenment. Its range is astounding as it covers the entire spectrum of Irish achievement in all fields of human endeavour throughout recorded history. The conventional subjects are all here: literature and language, history, geography, economics, sociology, the arts and music.But other subjects, often neglected in Irish reference books, are also given their due place, such as science, engineering, astronomy, and sport. The publication of "The Encyclopaedia of Ireland" is a truly significant event. It represents the culmination of many years' collaboration between an entire community of talented writers led by a uniquely qualified team of editors. 'A blast from beginning to end. The most exhilarating book imaginable' - Stephen Rea (17th September).

About the Author: Brian Lalor is the author of many books on Irish landscape, topography and travel, including Dublin Bay (1983), West of West (1990), The Laugh of Lost Men (1997) and The Blue Guide to Ireland (1998). As a printmaker and authority on Irish fine art prints, he has lectured in University College Dublin, the National Gallery of Ireland and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. During the late 1960s he worked as a design architect in London, Munich and Tel Aviv, where he was a prize winner in the Habima Theatre Competition. In 1970 he joined the Hebrew University Jerusalem's Temple Mount Excavation as Director of the Architectural Department and subsequently excavated with the Smithsonian Institution Washington DC, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique Paris, The British School of Archaeology and other international institutions. Brian Lalor lives in Dublin and West Cork.
