Bestselling author Christopher Winn takes us on a fascinating journey around Ireland, to discover the tales buried deep in Irish history. Packed full of myths and legends, firsts, birthplaces, inventions, and adventures, this fact book visits each of the four provinces—Ulster, Leinster, Munster, and Connaught—and unearths the hidden gems that each county in these provinces holds. Discover where people and ideas were born, where dreams were inspired, and where the unforgettable figures of Ireland's past now slumber. You'll be able to visit the holy mountain, Croagh Patrick in Country Mayo, where St Patrick is said to have driven all the snakes in Ireland into the sea. At Lismore Castle in County Waterford you will uncover the bathroom dedicated to Fred Astaire, whose sister Adele was the hugely popular Chatelaine of Lismore in the 1930s and 1940s. On the winter solstice you can bathe in the sunlight that fills the burial chamber at Newgrange, County Meath—the oldest solar observatory in the world. This irresistible compendium of facts and stories will give you a captivating insight into the Irish, and the ideas and events that have shaped the individual identity of every place you visit, and will have you exclaiming again and again: "Well, I never knew that!"
