The priest's pig gets the most porridge.
In this illustrated collection of blarney from all over the Emerald Isle, no one escapes the barb: the clergy, the miser, the drinker, the foreigner, the chaste maiden and her lusty suitor. There is also humour and pride, faith and love ... and the odd word of caution.
Learn to banter like the Irish with these wise, witty and wicked sayings. And remember ...
It's a good story that fills the belly.
