Researching your family history? Take a look at ‘ A Genealogist’s guide to discovering your Irish ancestors’, just one of several in the genealogy section.
Maeve Binchy writes of contemporary Ireland. A novel by her is ‘Heart and Soul,’ the story of family, friends, patients and staff who are part of a heart clinic in a community with conflicts between the old and the new in Ireland.
Or try Tana French’s psychological thrillers. Follow the ‘murder squad’ in Dublin as they work to solve the crime. The latest is ‘Broken Harbor.’
