Book DescriptionThe Republic of Ireland, describes variously as "The Emerald Tiger", "The Celtic Tiger" and the "Tiger Economy of Europe", is apparently one of the greatest success stories of the twentieth-century Europe. Just seventy-five years into independence, less than forty years from the Stygian blackness of pre-modernity, and only a decade from what seemed to be an economic apocalypse, Ireland, by its own self-hype, has finally got the pig out of the parlour and climbed astride its back.

Himself born at the dawn of the new era, John Waters is well placed to observe the national appetite for escape from its revolting history, full of dead things, into a new, liberal and enlightened age. This book is his attempt to write down the truth beforehe forgets.
