Overview

This impressive survey covers the early history of Ireland from the coming of Christianity to the Norman settlement (400 - 1200 AD). Within a broad political framework it explores the nature of Irish society, the spiritual and secular roles of the Church and the extraordinary flowering of Irish culture in the period. Other major themes are Ireland's relations with Britain and continental Europe, and Vikings and their influence, the beginnings of Irish feudalism, and the impact of the Viking and Norman invaders. Splendid in sweep and lively in detail, it launches the newLongman History of Ireland in fine style.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'The greatest strength of what assuredly will remain a standard treatment of early Ireland for years to come is that its ten chapters succeed in making the history of Ireland come alive...This is a fine, spirited book, and, what is more, a good read.' History (US) 'Makes the whole subject accessible for the first time... for this, all who wish to approach the earliest Irish history are in O'Croinin's debt.' Times Literary Supplement
