Editorial Reviews

Small Press
For independent, inquisitive travelers traversing the green roads of Ireland, there is no better guide than A Traveller's History of Ireland.
Library Journal
This book will be appreciated by visitors who want more historical background than ordinary series guidebooks supply. From discussions of the dawn of Irish history to the 1992 constitutional debate over abortion, Neville ably leads the reader through the complicated factors underlying the island's present religious and political strife. He recounts how Ireland was spared invasion by the Romans and shows how the Vikings, Normans, and English have left their marks. Useful features include a gazetteer of historical sites and a chronology of the major events from the year A.D. 77, when the Romans contemplated an invasion, to the 1992 approval of the Maastricht Treaty. Highly recommended for the travel collections of public libraries. --William R. Smith, Johns Hopkins Univ., Baltimore
