A dictionary with a difference! What's the difference between 'orla' and 'órla', 'craic' and 'cráic', 'ait' and 'áit'? It turns out that there's a world of difference. Rossa (and co-author Mícheál Ó Domhnall) spent many, many early-morning-coffee-drenchedl hours searching for words that change meaning dramatically when an accent (fada) is added to one of the vowels. 

This fascinating book is devilishly decorated with cartoons and has an equally fascinating account of one man's campaign to restore the fada to its rightful place on the 'e' in Éire!
