Mediocre would be a compliment too far!

Fun and Interesting in every way
Ignore the wannabe history professors reviewing this and read the title. I am Irish and like most; think I know the full story in a kind of patch work way. This is what this book does. It's all your History classes from school brought together in a humourous and well constructed way. I purchased this knowing I would be on a long journey home and I loved it.
It is not supposed to an intellectual thesis; but a easily accessible story with some brilliant characters that perhaps we have forgotten about.
So never mind some would-be, late night, boring as hell reviewer who wants to really just say how clever he is...and enjoy a nostalgic trip back to 3rd year double history on a Wednesday afternoon and remember how bloody rich our little land is.
