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, Foster’s stories may not be found in the history books but they certainly provide an entertaining and addictive read!
Allen Foster lives in on a farm in Enfield, Co Meath. When not tending to his cattle or walking his beloved dogs, he finds the time to be a freelance journalist and researcher. He is the author of eight other books, including Foster’s Irish Oddities, Foster’s Even Odder Irish Oddities and Around the World with Citizen Train: The Sensational Adventures of the Real Phileas Fogg.
