A Traveller's History of Ireland gives a full and accurate portrait of Ireland from prehistory right up to the present. The story opens with mysterious early Celtic Ireland where no Roman stood, through Saint Patrick's mission to Ireland which began the process of making it 'an island of saints', to the legendary High King Brian Boru and his struggle with Viking and Irish enemies alike. It moves on through the arrival of the Norman 'Strongbow' in the twelfth century, and the beginnings of the difficult and tragic Anglo-Irish relationship. Great historical figures like Hugh O'Neill, Cromwell, and Jonathan Swift figure as well as ordinary people like the Londonderry 'apprentice boys' who helped change the course of Irish history. A Traveller's History of Ireland then takes the reader into modern times, with the great revolts of 1798, the horrors of the Potato Famine, and the careers of the leading constitutional nationalists O'Connell and Parnell. The final chapter of the book fully covers the division of the island into two separate administrations: the Republic of Ireland and the six Northern counties which remain part of the United Kingdom with a newly-revived assembly.Illustrated throughout with maps and line drawings, A Traveller's History of Ireland will help you discover Ireland's past and present.
