Just an excellent read, full of detail of how the history of Ireland gave birth to songs that remain today. The detail that is gone into is immense and the pictures help relate to the people/events involved. Anyone who is unaware of events that have shaped the political landscape of this country and how the connection with Celtic still remains so strong today really should buy this. By far the best value book relating to Celtic I think you can get and considering the 2 CDs as well you really have to get it.
