From the earliest settlements at Mount Sandel around 7000 BC to the first meeting of the Northern Ireland Assembly in 2007, the book introduces the great moments in Irish history to children. Double page spreads are devoted to nine key moments:
- The Battle Of Clontarf
- The Desmond Rebellions
- The Battle Of Boyne
- The 1798 Rebellion
- The Great Famine
- The Rise Of The GAA
- The Easter Rising
- World War 2 (concentrating on the Bombing of the North Strand - when the war came to Dublin)
- The Good Friday Agreement
And social history is not forgotten - here you'll also find the first publication of the Irish Times, Dana's Eurovision song contest victory, the opening of Dublin Zoo, Riverdance and Stephen Roche's victory in the Tour de France. Illustrated throughout in full colour, here's a perfect introduction for children to Irish history in bite sized chunks.
