An episodic history of Ireland beginning with a brief prologue about pre Christian Ireland then covering 1 The coming of Christianity to Ireland which was then sent back into mainland Europe as learning was lost with the Dark Ages although interesting the biography of Columbanus in Europe felt out of place2 A little about the Irish kingdoms themselves Perhaps there is little evidence of these but other than Dal Riata Scottish Isles and north Irish kingdom and what became Ulster there was too little about this3 The coming of the Viking and how this was similar but different from in EnglandBritain4 The coming of the NormansAngevins including the creation of the Pale which was interesting as although I knew that this had happened I did not know any detail5 The reformation Cromwell By 1660 famine fighting and disease had wiped out between a fifth and a uarter of the Irish population and protestant settlements mainly Presbyterians from Scotland I really had not understood how Ulster s protestants were separate from English interests Also the start of emigration with Catholics emigrating to Europe the wild geese 6 The Act of Settlement 1652 an attempt at social engineering on a vast and revolutionary scale dispossessing landowners in order to hand their estates over to newcomers and it was underpinned by the hope that in the end the Irish would depart for good The effect was the creation of the Ascendancy in Ireland a Protestant class of five thousand odd families that would control the lion s share of the land and this was the great shift that would dominate the country s affairs for the next 270 years But then too little about the Ascendancy7 The Battle of the Boyne 1690 though it was certainly not the great decisive engagement of Irish myth has provided one enduring image that of William on a white charger his vast force wholly outnumbering outgunning and outflanking the Jacobites Catholics from various countries8 More emigration The eighteenth century witnessed the first mass emigration in Irish history between 1717 and 1776 a uarter of a million Presbyterians sailed from Belfast Derry and the smaller ports of Ulster for a new life in North America Some made for Canada leaving a lasting imprint on the culture and politics of Ontario in particular the majority however chose to settle in the United States where they came to be known as the Scots Irish 9 The potato famine 1845 49 a European wide blight but It was only in Ireland however that such a high proportion of the population was so utterly dependent on a single crop And the Irish uestion trying unsuccessfully to bring the Catholic majority into the administration of Ireland in the 19th century10 Moving to the late nineteenth and twentieth century there was useful explanations to me of the personalities and significance of Charles Stewart Parnell Michael Collins and de Valera the policies of Unionism and Nationalism the Free State s brief civil war the impact of the Irish diaspora upon Irish politics and culture the influence of the Catholic Church from the 1920 s onwards and neutrality during the second world war11 There are brief mentions of Irish culture once we reach the late nineteenth century although the majority of this was produced by Irish emigrants It was sadinterestingappalling to read that at the end of the 1920s a massive 93 per cent of children were in receipt of no secondary education at all 12 With regard to the analysis of late twentieth century and later politics in the Afterword it is perhaps difficult to stand back from this with sufficient perspective as it is still too close in time to be history rather than memory However a brave attempt is made at providing an outline analysis without being partisan Some of this was familiar to me from news reports from the 1970 s onwards and it was interesting to read about these events as history and from a southern Irish perspectivePerhaps inevitably there is much about the relationship with EnglandBritain as well as with other countries especially Scotland and France As noted above there is too little about the indigenous Irish themselves and about immigrants especially for early periodsOverall despite some weaknesses especially with pre Christian Ireland I have learnt much and the book is a good readable introduction to Ireland s history
