    Description
    In this provocative and extremely funny book Roy Foster demolishes the cliches that surround Ireland's past, examining how key moments from its history have been turned into myths - and, more recently, airbrushed and repackaged for Hollywood and popular culture.

    Whether discussing the "misery tourism" of Famine theme parks, ideas of mystical Celticism, the contested "Irishness" of Yeats or the sentimentalised childhoods of 'Angela's Ashes' and Gerry Adams memoir, 'The Irish Story' brilliantly separates the tall tales from the truth.
