Irish history with minimal detail but plenty of nationalistic fervor. For a small, exceedingly northerly, sparsely populated island a far ways out in the North Atlantic, Ireland sure has a lot of written history. Murphy and O’Dea’s book openly admits its depth of insight is vanishingly small (the great famine when 1.5 million people starved to death and from which another 2.5 million were eventually forced to flee the country runs less than 2 pages), however, it tries to compensate with breadth. ...more

I loved this book as I am simply awful at Irish history so a quick summary was right up my street I have to say I feel the book is more for the Irish to read up about their history as there was a lot of Irish jokes that I'm not sure the visitors would get straight away.

A decent and very-short summary of Irish history. It's very readable, and covers about 1000 years of history very, very quickly. I read it because I'm heading there this summer and wanted a little bit of knowledge before I go.

Granted I just got back from a vacation in Ireland so I was kind of geeked about the country, but their history is very unique and this book is an entertaining way to learn more about it.
