Praise for Recalling the Celtic Tiger
‘The Celtic Tiger was a dramatic period in Irish history when a troubled and economically backward country suddenly seemed to have discovered Aladdin’s lamp and all its wishes came true. It was liberating, exhilarating, self-delusional and ultimately disastrous and we are still living with its dodgy legacy. This brilliantly conceived kaleidoscope of a book, with its constantly shifting perspectives and superbly succinct mini-essays, is full of information, insight, wit and judgement and amounts to the best overview of the excitement and the madness we are ever likely to get.’
— Fintan O’Toole, Irish Times journalist and writer.
‘Recalling the Celtic Tiger is full of short, digestible reads which remind us of the sheer breadth of the collapse and the socio-cultural context which was often drowned out by an overconcentration on economic analysis.’
–Miriam O’Callaghan, Broadcaster and Journalist.
‘Recalling the Celtic Tiger offers a much needed reappraisal of a hugely important sea change in modern Irish society. By tackling issues surrounding religion, literature and culture, in addition to the financial and economic factors, the short essays provide a comprehensive analysis of how Ireland was affected by the years of boom and bust.’
— Declan Kiberd, Keough Professor of Irish Studies at Notre Dame University.
‘Recalling the Celtic Tiger is a timely and useful reminder that the Tiger and its demise was not just, or even primarily, an economic phenomenon, but had profound socio-cultural roots and ongoing impact.’
–Sarah Carey, Columnist and Broadcaster.
