really liked it

I listened to the author, Frank Delaney read this audiobook, which made all the difference. IRELAND is a rambling collection of folk tales, mythology and history about Ireland, as told by a traveling storyteller. The secondary storyline involves Ronan OMara from age 9 to 25, from his first meeting with the storyteller through his facination to reconnect with the storyteller throughout his growing up. Some of the stories were more interesting than others, but listening to Frank Delaney's melifluous Irish voice made all of them charming. Delaney has great style and wit in his approach to sharing Ireland's charm and backbone. This book is for anyone who doesn't mind a little rambling and can just enjoy the experience---a great road audiobook. Being of Irish ancestory and having been to Ireland and seen many of the places mentioned also added to my enjoyment of the book.
