Guide to Modern
Irish Manners
Noel Cunningham
Society has
We live in an
informal world.
We have in many
ways become
of rules and have no time for the old
order and taboos. Authority and the
grace of age, two important pillars of
etiquette, are no longer regarded.
With his infectious charm and sharp
wit, Noel Cunningham shares with you
his tips on sailing through life's events,
enabling people to be themselves,
while solving the thorny issues of
which fork to use, who goes through a
door fi rst, how to attend an important
interview. The correct way of doing
those things will become clear.
Are you confused about how to set a
formal dining table? Is it acceptable
to hold doors open? How to address
the thorny question of mobile
phones and gadgets. Noel's book
is a fun and informative guide, to
help us navigate modern-day life
with class and good humour.

Cunningham been General
