‘It was the perfect Irish marriage – she didn’t want to and he couldn’t.’ – Spike Milligan. Irish Wit takes the best of Wilde, Swift, Shaw, Behan, Milligan and many more to bring you the finest of Irish wit, humour and wisdom.

The Irish have a reputation for being the wittiest people on earth and when you read this book, you'll soon see why.

Pick up any book of quotations in the English language and you will find it chock-full of quotations from Irish authors such as Wilde, Shaw, Sheridan, Beckett, Keane, Kavanagh and Ó Faoláin, plus the new kids on the block like Moran, O'Hanlon, McAleer and Moncrieff.

Irish Wit cuts through the rest to give you the very cream of Irish humour. From reviews of Wit: 'Wit… unlike most books of humorous quotations, is actually funny' - Paul Vallelly, The Independent 'A contender for the Book of the Month' - Matthew Norman, The Guardian
