    DescriptionShortlisted as the Best Irish-Published Book of the Year at the 2013 Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards The members of the Irish Countrywomen's Association have a saying: 'Nil aon tintean mar do thintean fein' (there's no hearth like your own hearth) and when all is said and done what is more important than home and family? In their fantastic new book, hundreds of Irish women from the ICA share their practical tips, short-cuts, and precious first-hand experience on how to make a house a home. Whether you are looking for a tip to remove a stain from your dress, or a quiet word of wisdom on marital harmony; a how-to for the garden, or inspiration for a home-made gift: you know you can trust the ICA's advice to be practical, down-to-earth and achievable. Running a home is an important job. It demands the organisational skills of a project manager, the budgeting of an accountant, a myriad of cooking and cleaning skills - together with that little bit of magic which mothers always add. If you've ever wished you'd written down the clever tricks, special touches or pearls of wisdom that seemed to come naturally to your mother and grandmother, then don't reinvent the wheel: let the women of the ICA guide you through home management from beginning to end.

    Author Information
    Founded in May 1910, the aim of the ICA was 'to improve the standard of life in rural Ireland through education and co-operative effort'. Today the ICA has 700 local Guilds in cities, towns and rural areas throughout Ireland. They continue to offer support and fun as well as opportunities to make friends, learn new skills and contribute to the wider community. Every day, the women share with each other nuggets of advice, tried-and-tested methods and practical help, and they hope this book will pass on some of that knowledge to you.
