A Short History of Ireland

A concise account of Irish history which traces the successive invasions of Celts, Vikings and Normans, the Tudor and Stuart settlements and the gradual emergence of the 'Irish question' in British politics. The failure of the union with Great Britain and the consequent partition of the island is described, and developments in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in modern times discussed.

Succinct biographies of prominent figures, descriptions of major historical sites and a list of important dates are included, making this an ideal introductory study for everyone with an interest in Ireland.
