Two Thousand Years of Irish History

St. Patrick; Brian Boru; Vikings

Normans; Wild Geese; Famine…

Peter Adams and I go from the time of the ancient Celts,
to the famine era in Ireland. The massive exodus to N.
America, Australia, Scotland, England and S. Africa…
is covered too. Having published the Histories of Ireland
by Keating, and by the Four Masters, plus the Conquest of Ireland,
my resource shelf was ready for this one!

‘They were rough unpolished men, teaching by the side of the road,
in small rooms, whenever and wherever possible’.

You are invited into my hedge school today.
