More About This Title The Little Book of Belfast


The Little Book of Belfast is a compendium of fascinating, obscure, strange, and entertaining facts about the city of Belfast. Funny, fast-paced, and fact-packed, here we find out about the most unusual crimes and punishments, eccentric inhabitants, and strange traditions alongside details of its flora and fauna, sporting heritage, and, of course, its literary traditions. A reliable reference book and a quirky guide, this can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about the people, the heritage, and the secrets of this ancient country.
