About this Book

Author: F.X. Martin

Date Published: 01-Aug-2011

The Course of Irish History is the classic general history of Ireland, covering the economic, social and political development of the island of Ireland from prehistoric times to the present day. It provides a comprehensive overview of the major events, personalities and movements in Ireland's past that have shaped the country which exists today. First published in 1967, The Course of Irish History has been regularly updated and revised in response to the continued demand for a balanced view of Ireland that is both popular and authoritative. It is widely regarded as the best single-volume overview of Irish history. In this edition, a new chapter covers the momentous changes that occurred in Ireland between 2001 and 2011 including the rise and fall of the celtic tiger, the property collapse, the banking crises and government bailout, the fall of ireland from the grace of the European Union, the demise of the Catholic Church following revelations in a series of reports on child sexual abuse and failure to report crimes to the Gardai, sporting triumphs and cultural and literary achievements. This remarkable period in Ireland's turbulent history is examined by Professor Dermot Keogh, an expert in the field, in the spirit of objectivity that shapes the rest of The Course of Irish History. The book is illustrated throughout and includes a detailed bibliography and chronology to aid further research. It is an essential text for anyone interested in the history of Ireland.
