The history of Ireland is one of oppression and emancipation, characterized by foreign rule and the fight for freedom. It is a history in which religious and political conflicts sit side by side with a shared love of the ancient magic that enshrouds the island. The Irish have a great sense of national identity and this is reflected in their history: their heritage is ancient and their culture unique. Irish History offers a complete A to Z journey through a turbulent past that has shaped the country today.
