A collection of 36 curious stories about overlooked aspects of Irish history told in a very entertaining style, you'll definitely learn a thing or two from this book about Ireland's forgotten past. 

It all starts with a bear and investigates questions like Why did the Romans never try to conquer Ireland? Why did the King of Spain give his name to an Irish county? In his inimitable lively style, Bunbury explores the people and events from high to low that played major roles in Ireland’s fascinating past but have since been overlooked. With tales of spymasters and scientists, battlefields and brothels, tailors and traitors. Ireland’s Forgotten Past paints a surprising, witty and engaging new portrait of an Ireland you thought you knew.

Check out the rest of our gifts for those who love their popular culture books.
