" A good read. It was a great piece of education prior to my trip over there. " said.

" Very thorough coverage of subjects broken down chronologically. Have little interest in some areas such as many of the early literature, but I'm sure others would be interested. The reference list is well done as well so you can research further. " said.

" This only deserves five stars because it was exactly the book I was looking for. There might indeed be better histories--but I was sick of not knowing how Ireland became two countries, about the relationship with England, what's with the "troubles." This book starts with Stone Age settlers and their dolmens and ends with the twenty-first century economic history. It's short and to the point...just what I needed. Damn that Cromwell. So there it is...if you want to borrow it, let me know. " said.

" Faced with a 1,000 page History of Ireland I thought well
how much I do really want to learn about the Emerald Isle,
and in how much time? While wavering I finally chose
'A Brief History of Ireland.'

Then there is the challenge of condensing the stories of
a couple thousand years into 359 pages. The result is you
get a lot of names of kings and dates and most of the
colorful anecdotes left out, so a bit like eating
breakfast cereal without the milk.

However the title is 'Brief' and this book provides a good
intro, a place to start, a reference of giving you all the
facts, then if you wish to continue to delve into a particular
era or person, then off you can go.

A few Appendix are also included giving, basic facts,
time lines and names of various government lineages, all
good reference items.
