The book is just so different from all the others of its kind that it brings a smile to my face every time I browse in it, giving me a feeling that Leslie and I have produced a beautiful and exciting evocation of Ireland as it was-and is.” ―Peter Harbison, co-author reflecting on IRELAND: A LUMINOUS BEAUTY, for The Irish Times
