As the centenary of 1916 approaches, 'The True(ish) History of Ireland' reveals the funny side of Ireland's story. Using hearsay, rumour and some brilliant cartoons, writer Garvan Grant and cartoonist Gerard Crowley have created an (almost) factual look at the birth, childhood and adolescence of the nearly mature nation.

Get to the very heart of what it means to be a True Gael by taking a look at the accidental invention of poitín by St Patrick, the conquest of the country by some evil, yet rather posh English people and the discovery of the legendary Everlasting Pint in a cave in east Galway. Right up to yesterday evening, when the Irish were hard at work trying to create another never-ending economic boom, it sums up the joyous, glorious and often hilarious experience of being Irish.
