The twelve chapters in Phases of Irish History were delivered as lectures before public audiences in Dublin. These chapters make no pretense of forming an entire course of Irish history for any period. Their objective was to update and augment. These chapters presume the reader's acquaintance with some general presentation of Irish history. The author of this work Eoin MacNeill (1867 –1945), was an Irish scholar, Irish language enthusiast, Gaelic revivalist, nationalist, and politician. A key figure of the Gaelic revival, MacNeill was a co-founder of the Gaelic League to preserve the Irish language and culture. He has been described as "the father of the modern study of early Irish medieval history". Content includes: The Ancient Irish a Celtic People The Celtic Colonisation of Ireland and Britain The Pre-Celtic Inhabitants of Ireland The Five Fifths of Ireland Greek and Latin Writers on Pre-Christian Ireland Introduction of Christianity and Letters The Irish Kingdom in Scotland Ireland's Golden Age The Struggle with the Norsemen Medieval Irish Institutions The Norman Conquest The Irish Rally

A New History of Ireland, Volume I marks the culmination of the largest scholarly project in modern Irish history. It consists of nine volumes, by over a hundred contributors, mainly historians but including also historical geographers and specialists in other disciplines, such as language and literature, the visual arts, and music. Seven of the volumes are text, and deal not only with politics but also with economic, social, and cultural history. The other volumes contain maps and reference material. As the final volume to appear in this multi-volume series, A New History of Ireland Volume I brings to a close the project initiated by T. W. Moody and R. Dudley-Edwards in the 1960s, to provide a comprehensive new synthesis of modern scholarship on every aspect of Irish history and prehistory, from the earliest geological and archaeological evidence, through the Middle Ages, and down to the present day. Volume I begins by looking at geography and the physical environment.Chapters follow which examine pre-3000, neolithic, bronze-age and iron-age Ireland and Ireland up to 800. Society, laws, church and politics are all analysed separately as are architecture, literature, manuscripts, language, coins and music. The volume is brought up to 1166 with chapters, amongst others, on the Vikings, Ireland and its neighbours, and opposition to the High-Kings. A final chapter moves further on in time, examining Latin learning and literature in Ireland to 1500.

Edmund Curtis's remarkable survey of Ireland, from its earliest origins to the twentieth century, is a classic introduction to Ireland's fascinating history. Reaching from St Patrick's Mission in 432 to the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 1922, this authoritative text explores the formative events of Ireland's past and encompasses the Norman invasion, Gaelic recovery, Cromwell's Settlement, the Act of Union, and the Great Famine. Lucid and scholarly, this all-embracing account unfolds the events of Ireland's history and the story of its people, through an examination of their political, religious, social, economic and cultural past. Ireland's unique history is revealed here through the 'moving forces, the deciding facts, and the men who mattered'. Featuring a chronology of key dates in Irish history and a guideline to the pronunciation of Irish names, this celebrated narrative now includes a new introduction by Sean Duffy.
