Description

You may know all about the Easter Rising and the Good Friday Agreement, but did you know that the hypodermic needle was invented in Tallaght? Or that Dublin was the first city in the world to have a woman stockbroker, decades before London or New York? Or that the formula used to create the video game Tomb Raider was sketched on a bridge in Cabra in the nineteenth century?

With one entry for every day of the year, book marks the anniversaries of momentous events in Irish history: in politics, medicine, music, sport and innovation.

In this accessible, comprehensive and authoritative book, discover the moments that have helped to shape the national identity of Ireland.
