The members of the Irish Countrywomen's Association have a saying: 'Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin' (there's no hearth like your own hearth) and when all is said and done what is more important than home and family?
In their fantastic new book, hundreds of Irish women from the ICA share their practical tips, short-cuts, and precious first-hand experience on how to make a house a home. Whether you are looking for a tip to remove a stain from your dress, or a quiet word of wisdom on marital harmony; a how-to for the garden, or inspiration for a home-made gift: you know you can trust the ICA's advice to be practical, down-to-earth and achievable. Running a home is an important job. It demands the organisational skills of a project manager, the budgeting of an accountant, a myriad of cooking and cleaning skills - together with that little bit of magic which mothers always add.
