Overview

This is the story of Ireland – not just her History, but her story. Her Music, her Poetry and Theatre, her ancient Brehon laws. How people lived in the times of Brian Boru, what they wore and what they ate and drank. It’s the story of her roads, her railways, her canals. It’s the story of her industries, her agriculture, her linen, her ship building, and her modern financial revolution. It’s the story of the Irish in America, and the trials and tribulations they faced to get there. But it’s also her history, the history of her people from St. Patrick to Ian Paisley, of the Famine and the wars, of the Celts and the Norman invaders and how they blended together and eventually made that unique people with music in their souls and business in their brains, the Irish.
