Over the centuries, Ireland has produced an astonishing wealth of writers, from Oscar Wilde and Patrick Kavanagh to W. B. Yeats and Seamus Heaney. An island steeped in literary tradition and inspired by its dramatic landscape, history and people, its rich and colorful heritage is celebrated in this unique compilation.

For the first time ever, more than 30 of Ireland's best-loved poems have been recorded by some of the most moving, resonant, and memorable voices to have ever come out of the country and are featured in this book and CD collection. From Bono to Pierce Brosnan, Maeve Binchy to Richard Harris, Colin Farrell to Bob Geldof, figures from every walk of Irish public life have given their own unique slant on poems ranging from classics from Padraic Colum and Patrick Kavanagh to contemporaries like Seamus Heaney and Brendan Kennelly.
