Summary

Summary

History comes to life in this unique and colorful volume charting the dramatic story of Ireland, from its Celtic roots through the present day.

It is astonishing to reflect on the impact that Ireland has had on the world's culture and history. Here, in one richly illustrated and informative volume-featuring ten giant gatefolds-the chronicle of this influential isle is laid out in all its drama and glory. Parallel histories of the many strands of Irish life are traced decade by decade, encompassing the country's politics, religion, arts, agriculture and famous figures. From the origins of Celtic society to the founding of Dublin; from the potato famines to Bloody Sunday, Timetables of Irish History provides a clear pictorial narrative and an enlightening historical context for this fascinating and complex country.
