History Lessons from the Hedge Row
Lessons From the Hedge Row
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!
Two Thousand Years of Irish History
St. Patrick; Brian Boru; Vikings
Normans; Wild Geese; Famine...
'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.
