Just ordered ‘Irish Peasant Society. Four Historical Essays’ by K.H. Connell online (recommended to us by Frank – has essays on Illicit alcohol and the Ulster Ether epidemic – thanks for directing us to it Frank). Being naturally suspicious of online vendors we checked out the new ‘online shopping assistant’, HOWARD, from the European Consumer Centre. At the bottom left of the ECC website you’ll find Howard, who helpfully checks the reliability of the vendor. A useful tool indeed.
