Description

Test your Irish knowledge with So You Think You're Irish!

With over 500 multiple choice questions about everything from the Blarney Stone to James Joyce, So You Think You're Irish will test your IQ (Irish Quotient, that is), and determine how much of the Emerald Isle you really have in you. The Irish are a strong bunch of people, and those who attest to their Irish heritage stand staunchly behind their knowledge of the reason. But, how do they really know unless they pass this test?

Test your Celtic qualifications in these categories: Irish-Americans; Beliefs, Legends, Superstitions, and Remedies; Irish History; and Ireland Today. This book is filled with fun facts, short quizzes, long historical text, and Irish history tests where you can try your knowledge on for size. From food to superstition, history to language, county Mayo to Staten Island, this book asks the questions every knowledgeable Irish person should be able to answer.

In So You Think You're Irish, even the non-Irish will have fun taking quizzes and learning things about their own heritage they may not have known. Pick up a copy of So You Think You're Irish and quiz your friends to see if they really know their stuff.
