This lively and beautifully illustrated trip through Irish history begins 9,000 years ago when the island was a very wild, natural and beautiful place. It takes the reader through the Stone Age including Newgrange and other tombs, the Celts, saints and pagans, the Vikings, the Normans, English invasions, the famine, the division of Ireland, and the Celtic Tiger. With a readable format of illustrations, photographs, cartoons and short questions, this is a well paced introduction to the long and varied history of Ireland for children of all ages. Brendan O'Brien has worked as a history teacher and award-winning television journalist.
