100 Moments in Irish History

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:

BATTLE OF CLONTARF
DESMOND REBELLIONS
BATTLE OF THE BOYNE
1798 REBELLION
GREAT FAMINE
THE RISE OF THE GAA EASTER RISING
WORLD WAR 2 (concentrating on the Bombing of the North Strand – when the war came to Dublin)
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.
