NOW I KNOW WHY ...

Now I know why I've been wanting to read this book. Apart from the fact that I'm of Irish ancestry (my paternal great-grandfather, James Patrick Higgins, dropped the "O" in O'Higgins, for reasons we in the family are not quite sure of, although the reigning story, perhaps apocryphal, is that his German wife strong-armed him into having it changed legally), when you listen to something like this audio, you can only swell with resolute, centuries-old Irish pride. Pour me a Guiness!
