Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A short and entertaining history from earliest times to the present by one of Ireland's best-loved writers. This book deals with prehistory, the Celts, Christianity, the Vikings and the Normans. The various conquests and rebellions are covered, including Cromwell, Wolfe Tone and the 1916 Rising. One of its strong features is that it brings history up to date, providing an interesting account of both North and South over the past eighty years, clarifying the development and intricacies of the Northern Troubles and the many attempts to resolve them. Understanding and sympathetic, this little book gives a clear and stimulating grasp of Ireland, past and present.
