English as we speak it in Ireland

Front Cover
Wolfhound, 1988 - Humor - 356 pages
This invaluable book is at times a dictionary of Irish sayings as well as a collection of Hiberno-Englishisms. Joyce writes with enthusiasm and wit and the book reflects his interest in the Irish and English languages, the educational system, Irish music and song, place names and local history.
