Foster’s Historical Irish Oddities: A Compendium of Extraordinary But True Tales From Around Ireland

Length: 240 pages3 hours


Strange, zany and at times downright baffling, Foster’s Historical Irish Oddities is a quirky compendium of true stories from all over Ireland.

It is essential reading for anyone who loves to entertain friends and family with a good yarn or who needs further proof that Ireland is indeed a country with a unique cast of characters.

From the Lismore man who rode to Fermoy in a tub pulled by a pig, a badger, two cats, a goose and a hedgehog to the tornado that ripped through Limerick in 1851, this is the perfect book for anyone with an interest in Irish history and a taste for the absurd. Foster’s stories may not be found in the history books but they certainly provide an entertaining and addictive read!
