Medieval Ireland

Ireland by Clare Downham, Medieval Ireland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Medieval Ireland books, Medieval Ireland is often described as a backward-looking nation in which change only came about as a result of foreign invasions. By examining the wealth of under-explored evidence available, Downham challenges this popular notion and demonstrates what a culturally rich and diverse place medieval Ireland was. Starting in the fifth century, when St Patrick arrived on the island, and ending in the fifteenth century, with the efforts of the English government to defend the lands which it ruled directly around Dublin by building great ditches, this up-to-date and accessible survey charts the internal changes in the region. Chapters dispute the idea of an archaic society in a wide-range of areas, with a particular focus on land-use, economy, society, religion, politics and culture. This concise and accessible overview offers a fresh perspective on Ireland in the Middle Ages and overthrows many enduring stereotypes.

Download A History Of Women In Ireland 1500 1800 books, The first general survey of the history of women in early modern Ireland. Based on an impressive range of source material, it presents the results of original research into women’s lives and experiences in Ireland from 1500 to 1800. This was a time of considerable change in Ireland as English colonisation, religious reform and urbanisation transformed society on the island. Gaelic society based on dynastic lordships and Brehon Law gave way to an anglicised and centralised form of government and an English legal system.

Ireland And The Magdalene Laundries

Ireland by Claire McGettrick, Ireland And The Magdalene Laundries Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ireland And The Magdalene Laundries books, Between 1922 and 1996, over 10,000 girls and women were imprisoned in Magdalene Laundries, including those considered 'promiscuous', a burden to their families or the state, those who had been sexually abused or raised in the care of the Church and State, and unmarried mothers. These girls and women were subjected to forced labour as well as psychological and physical maltreatment. Using the Irish State's own report into the Magdalene institutions, as well as testimonies from survivors and independent witnesses, this book gives a detailed account of life behind the high walls of Ireland's Magdalene institutions. The book offers an overview of the social, cultural and political contexts of institutional survivor activism, the Irish State's response culminating in the McAleese Report, and the formation of the Justice for Magdalenes campaign, a volunteer-run survivor advocacy group. Ireland and the Magdalene Laundries documents the ongoing work carried out by the Justice for Magdalenes group in advancing public knowledge and research into Magdalene Laundries, and how the Irish State continues to evade its responsibilities not just to survivors of the Magdalenes but also in providing a truthful account of what happened. Drawing from a variety of primary sources, this book reveals the fundamental flaws in the state's investigation and how the treatment of the burials, exhumation and cremation of former Magdalene women remains a deeply troubling issue today, emblematic of the system of torture and studious official neglect in which the Magdalene women lived their lives. The Authors are donating all royalties in the name of the women who were held in the Magdalenes to EPIC (Empowering People in Care).

The Chronicle Of Ireland Introduction Text

Ireland by T. M. Charles-Edwards, The Chronicle Of Ireland Introduction Text Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Chronicle Of Ireland Introduction Text books, The Chronicle of Ireland is the principal source for the history of events not only in Ireland itself but also in what is now Scotland up to 911. It incorporated annals compiled on Iona up to c. 740 - a monastery which played a major role in the history of Ireland, of the Picts to its east and, from 635 to 664, of Northumbria. Up to c. 740 the Chronicle is thus a crucial source for both Ireland and Britain; and from c. 740 to 911 it still records some events outside Ireland. The text of the Chronicle is best preserved in the Annals of Ulster, but it was also transmitted through chronicles derived from a version made at the monastery of Clonmacnois in the Irish midlands. This translation is set out so as to show at a glance what text is preserved in both branches of the tradition and what is in only one. -- Amazon.com.

Ireland by Sheila Lawlor, Britain And Ireland 1914 23 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Britain And Ireland 1914 23 books, This analysis, based on many previously unused primary sources, offers the most authoritative account to date of the formative years of modern Ireland and the final years of the old United Kingdom. It is the first modern account to be concerned with the views and interventions of both the British and the Irish, military and political, placing events, interventions, and attitudes strictly in their historical context and radically reinterpreting the ambitions, interests and influences of the important figures of the period. Lawlor examines many issues hitherto neglected by historians, including the effects of the collapse of the British Liberal Party upon Ireland, the origins of the War of Independence and the Truce in the light of higher British politics, an analysis of how, after ratification of the Treaty, the 'republic' was merely part of a greater demand which unities of the dissident IRA made for control of their own 'destiny, ' and a controversial re-examination of de Valera's role in the period prior to the Civil War

Ireland by Jacqueline R. Hill, A New History Of Ireland Ireland 1921 84 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A New History Of Ireland Ireland 1921 84 books, A New History of Ireland, from the earliest times to the present, is a harvesting of modern scholarship on its subject. It consists of nine volumes by over a hundred contributors, mainly historians but including historical geographers and specialists in other such related disciplines aslanguage and literature, the visual arts, and music. Seven of the volumes are text, and deal with politics as well as economic, social, and cultural history. The other two volumes contain reference material.This, the seventh text volume to appear, concludes the text volumes of A New History of Ireland, of which the first (volume III: Early Modern Ireland 1534-1691) was published in 1976. Volume VII, covering the period 1921 to 1984, completes the series' coverage of Irish history from prehistorictimes to the twentieth century. It opens with a character study of the period, followed by fourteen chapters of narrative history, covering both parts of Ireland. There are additional chapters on the economy, literature in English and Irish, the Irish language, the visual arts, music, the massmedia, education, emigration and immigration, and the position of women from the 1860s to the 1980s. Two surveys of 'Land and People', c.1926 and c.1983 are included , and the volume ends with an extensive bibliography for the period 1921-84, covering both Northern Ireland and the Republic ofIreland. The two ancillary volumes contain reference material.The period covered by this volume is of major significance in the history of modern Ireland. It witnessed the coming into effect of the partition (following the Government of Ireland Act of 1920) and the establishment, in the wake of the war of independence and the 1921 Anglo-Irish treaty, of theIrish Free State. From this point on, although the Free State did not formally become a republic until 1948, the political evolution of the two parts of Ireland followed separate paths. The period ends with the New Ireland Forum of 1984, which reflected the willingness of the Irish Republic tolook in new ways at future relations between all the people of the island, and which was followed by the historic Anglo-Irish agreement of 1985. The twenty-five contributors to this volume, all specialists in their field, provide the most comprehensive treatment of these developments of anysingle-volume survey of twentieth-century Ireland.

Download Ireland books, “Dramatic, adventurous, heroic, romantic. . . these historical chronicles, legends, myths, tall tales and fables, featuring warriors, kings, monks, explorers and clever common folk, imaginatively tell the history of Ireland.” — Philadelphia Inquirer This New York Times bestselling epic is an unforgettable tour de force that marries the intimate, passionate texture of the Irish spirit with a historical scope that is sweeping and resplendent. Storyteller extraordinaire Frank Delaney takes his readers on a journey through the history of Ireland, stopping along the way to evoke the dramatic events and personalities so critical to shaping the Irish experience. In the winter of 1951, a storyteller, the last practitioner of an honored, centuries-old tradition, arrives at the home of nine-year-old Ronan O'Mara in the Irish countryside. For three wonderful evenings, the old gentleman enthralls his assembled local audience with narratives of foolish kings, fabled saints, and Ireland's enduring accomplishments before moving on. But these nights change young Ronan forever, setting him on a years-long pursuit of the elusive, itinerant storyteller and the glorious tales that are no less than the saga of his tenacious and extraordinary isle.
