    Thousands of people decended on Ireland that August weekend to celebratethe year of the founding of Ireland by John Stewart. (See Ireland History). During these meetings, the historical society volunteered to be in charge of writing a year history book of the Ireland area. The book was completed and published in December of A leap year is a year in which there are days, instead of the usual The extra day occurs on 29 February and reappears every four years, always in years that are evenly divisible by 4. The last leap year was in (4 × ) and will occur again in (4 × ).

    March in Ireland is filled with events. The country's largest annual event takes place in Dublin on March The St. Patrick's Day festival is a free event that features fireworks, films, music. Goodness, so many books! If you are looking for a comprehensive, single-volume survey of Irish history, I can recommend Thomas Bartlett's Ireland: A History (Cambridge, ). He writes in a breezy, readable style and covers the subject thoroughly.

    Funny book. Johnny Shaw's Big Maria is an American novel with a kind of buddy adventure / treasure hunt theme. Also very humorous. I can tell you one book not to buy - Ann Devine - Ready for her Close Up. A book by Irish comedian Colm O'Regan. It is a book of Irish mammy-isms loosely held together by a poor plot. O'Regan is just a poor writer. The Northern Ireland Yearbook is the most comprehensive reference guide to the government and political life of Northern Ireland. It is a useful point of reference for organisations across different sectors. The yearbook is a key publication that has been on the desks of the people of Northern Ireland for over 16 years.
