Irish Words of Wisdom is a wonderful gift book that truly lifts your spirits.
Written by Irish woman, Kate Hamilton, this book is inspired and dedicated to the memory of her father, Jim McEvoy, who had a saying for every situation, good and bad. Jim taught his daughter that if you don’t have faith you have nothing.
Today I’m delighted to introduce Kate’s book. To celebrate St. Patrick this week, Kate is offering a copy of her book as a prize for a lucky reader to win.
I’ll tell you how to enter for a chance to win at the end of this post, but first let’s find out what some of Kate’s readers have said about this little gem of Irish wisdom.
“Through words and pictures it captures us Irish in a magical way.”
“What a joy. I didn’t just read this book – I lived it.”
“It is one of those books you know is for keeps.”
“Reading it evokes a multitude of senses.
With an eye for detail on every page,
this beautiful work of art is filled with thought and emotion.”
These are just some of the words used to describe this beautiful gift book compiled by Kate Hamilton, who hails from Kileavy, County Armagh.
Kate explains: “The book was inspired by my late father who had a saying for all of life’s situations. The book is dedicated to his memory and teachings.”
This eloquent gift-book includes 28 witty quotations, 24 inspiring poems and 20 wonderful gems of wisdom from many of Ireland’s literary and contemporary greats who have travelled the path of experience, including Maureen O’Hara, Patrick Kavanagh, Michael Flately, Brendan Grace, Clannad, Christy O’Connor and many more, all set against a backdrop of over 60 stunning photographs.
The Beauty of South Armagh:
Kate is blessed to live in South Armagh, within the ring of Slieve Gullion, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
South Armagh lies within a region long associated with an ancient frontier that is as old as the earliest records of human habitation in Ireland.
It was along these roads and fields, and over these hills and mountains, that Cúchulainn and the Red Branch Knights, the O’Neills and the O’Hanlons roamed, battled and died.
Slieve Gullion’s mysterious reputation arises from its associations with myths and legends and the wider area’s rich archaeological heritage. It is alive with history, awash in scenic beauty and bursting with culture.
“It has been said of South Armagh that
you can ‘kick any stone’ and it will tell a story….”
Where To Buy Irish Words of Wisdom:
The book has certainly stirred emotion with reviewers who have described the little black and gold book as heart-warming, fascinating, inspiring, up-lifting and thought provoking.
When asked what she hoped to achieve by writing this book, Kate explained that she simply wanted to share the inspiration and motivation Irish people (featured in the book) have given to her and others, and to showcase these fine words against a backdrop of captivating photographs taken by imaginative photographers.
This stunning little hard-back book is certainly a gift to be treasured. You can order your copy with special gift-bag from Kate’s Irish Words of Wisdom website.
