Christmas – a time for peace, joy and Mammies. While others are focusing on Santa/Santy, the school nativity play, the office party and its wild cousin the Twelve Pubs, panicked present shopping and the delicate diplomacy of in-law visiting, the Irish Mammy is mobilized in her war-room – ready for the campaign. Electric blankets have been set to maximum power; cards have been despatched; the turkey has been ordered; the decorations have been retrieved from the Place Where The Decorations Go and the fifth Big Shop (to get breadcrumbs) has been completed. There are homecomings from near and far, new arrivals, drama, bustle, tears and laughter, and Mammy at the heart of it all, directing operations. There’s bound to be something she’s forgotten – but luckily, just like a certain someone, she’s made a list.

From the quintessential Irish Mammy to love for all things GAA, the Irish have a particularities – and peculiarities – that make us different from our neighbours. Social anthropologist David Slattery takes us through the rules of being Irish with deadpan humour, from how to approach an Irish wedding or funeral to the Irish attitude to health, business, politics, death, Christmas and being cool. For his research, David canvassed undercover for a major political party during the recent election campaign, attended opportune weddings and funerals, and interviewed doctors, psychiatrists, and a bunch of builders: "I have begged, spied, knocked down my house, got a job, dressed in drag and drank in many pubs – all in the interest of science." A unique popular anthropology book about being Irish, not only will this book prove instructive to the tourist or foreigner who wants to blend in without a fuss, but the Irish will find it interesting as a mirror to how we are.

Wie werde ich zum waschechten Iren – in 10 Kapiteln. Was macht einen wahren Iren aus? Wer wird zu einer irischen Beerdigung eingeladen und wenn ja, warum? Wie feiert man hier eine Hochzeit? Und warum sind dort immer mindestens 200 Gäste eingeladen? Was sind die wichtigsten Regeln in einem Irish Pub? Und was sorgt an Weihnachten für Konfliktstoff? David Slattery zeigt uns, welche Besonderheiten und Eigenheiten die Iren von ihren Nachbarn unterscheiden. Mit Fachkenntnis und einer ordentlichen Portion Humor führt uns der studierte Anthropologe durch die Regeln des irischen Miteinanders. Für seine Recherchen schleuste er sich in eine politische Partei ein, nahm an unzähligen Hochzeiten und Beerdigungen teil, arbeitete am Empfang einer Arztpraxis, trug Frauenkleidung und besuchte zahlreiche Pubs – alles im Dienste der Wissenschaft!
