Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0717149706, Hardcover)

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) and the 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 color, here's a perfect introduction for children to Irish history in bite sized chunks.
