I just read a book, pretty much a historical novel but different in format from any I've read before. This book was about the history and myths of Ireland told in a series of tales by an itinerant storyteller. The book is "Ireland" written by Frank Delaney. I don't know if it's available in Ireland, it seems to have been printed in the US. I found it unusually interesting and informative of Ireland and it's people in early days, the story of the architect of Newgrange, being the earliest account in the book. I was wondering if any of you folks,in the Emerald Isle by chancehad read the book and could send me a PM commenting on your opinions.

I'm surprised, and with you Irish fellows from the land of music, poetry and great tales!
