Childrens Book - Holy Shocking Saints ~ by Sine Quinn & Margaret Suggs

Our island is known the world over as the land of Saints and Scholars, but how many can you name and how well do you know your Irish saints? You might be surprised to learn of the great feats accomplished by these holy men and women.

In Holy Shocking Saints, Quinn brings the legends of twelve great Irish saints to life in this exciting array of myths, martyrs and miracles.

Irish history is intertwined with stories of saints who have fought kings, stood up for the poor and changed our landscape. Discover which saints descended from high kings, the saints that encountered wild sea monsters, the saint that charmed bees to chase off invaders and even Ireland’s mermaid saint. The sense of place tied to the saint sings from each profile, and in many cases a saint’s influence has reached beyond Ireland.

Suggs’ delicate full colour watercolour illustrations add individual character to each saints’ biography, with subtle symbolism in each scene. Crammed with facts that will not only make you look at Irish saints differently but understand how their legacy can still be seen in Ireland today.
