There's something magical about Ireland and all its legends, and Irish books about love and luck capture that feeling perfectly. How many of these have you read before?
We've probably all heard about Frank McCort's Angela's Ashes, which is a gritty look at the reality of growing up poor in a challenging time in Ireland's history, but there's so much more to the emerald green isle than just that.

This list includes:
- Books set in Ireland
- Irish or Irish-American characters
- A few fun YA books about luck to mix things up
