A Timeline of Irish History by Richard Killeen
A Timeline of Irish History is popular reference publishing at its best: concise, attractively presented and reliable. This is a crisply written, succinct summary of Ireland's past from the construction of Newgrange to the Northern Ireland peace process. Maps and illustrations are used to bring the events in the timeline to life. In addition, there are short introductory essays to the major developments in the story: the coming of Christianity; the Vikings and the Normans; the Reformation; the Georgian era; the Famine; the Irish revolution, and so on.
