Irish Words of Wisdom is a little calm oasis in which the weary mind can seek some solitude, reflection and more importantly inspiration to help us through the ups and downs of everyday life.  Kate Hamilton it’s author, inspired by her late father Jim McEvoy, has compiled a collection of  personal, thoughtful, humorous, wise and inspirational quotes drawn from the famous and not so famous but all of them  find some resonance for the reader whether they are looking for comfort, inspiration or just a little giggle to themselves. Beautifully produced in a striking gloss black and gold finish with a pretty presentation bag, it’s contents are equally impressive from its eclectic mix of wise words to  the magnificent photography of Irish landscape. It certainly is a book for life, for the coffee table or beside the bed you will find enjoyment and inspiration in this little black book. Geraldine Donaghy
