    Cool, so you think I should ring Trinity not CAO?

    And I suppose I do have a good reason, as basically I don't want to be 17 at Uni

    Thanks for your advice everyone, any massive faux pas (apart from the obvious 'paddy' which has been pointed out numerous times :P) - and any good, fairly concise (sort of A-level or equivalent standard) Irish history books any knows of so I could brush up before I went out?
    Jonathan Bardon - A History of Ireland in 250 episodes. This will give you an overview of most of the most important parts of Irish history. You will find (if you didn't grow up in Ireland) that Irish history is very different and much more expansive than you could ever know. This book is excellent because the writer covers subjects throughout Irish history in 1-2 page max. It goes thru Irish history in a linear pattern so you see it evolve. The short chapters allows you to get a great overview. After reading the book, you can then search out other reading on an area that you find interesting. This book really is a must.
