Additional Information

THE ONLY BOOK ON IRISH HISTORY YOU’LL EVER NEED!

From invasions to rebellions, heroic martyrs to pragmatic politicians, industrial development to mass emigration, A History of Ireland in 250 Episodes by renowned Irish historian Jonathan Bardon will take you on a sweeping journey through Irish history, getting behind the historical headlines to reveal the lived experience of Irish people.


Written in easy-to-read bitesize episodes, Bardon’s original and engaging style will make you feel as though you’re alongside William Smith O’Brien and his rebels at the Battle of Widow McCormack’s Cabbage Patch, traversing the country to banish snakes and convert Celts with St Patrick, and feasting with the Spanish Armada’s Captain Francisco de Cuellar and his wild Irish hosts. From taking up arms with the United Irishmen at Vinegar Hill to standing in solidarity with the workers of the Dublin 1916 Lockout, A History of Ireland in 250 Episodes will take you right to the heart of Irish history.

Featuring a cast of characters that leap off the page, from the well-known, like the hero of the War of Independence, Michael Collins, to the quirky, such as Susannah Cibber, the first soprano to sing Handel’s Messiah, A History of 250 Episodes will thrill, excite and inform you from start to finish. Whether you dip in and out of episodes or devour it from cover to cover, Bardon’s must-have book will teach you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Irish history and much, much more beyond.

A very comprehensive book written with passion & obvious knowledge. Not as much detail in some areas which interest me but never the less entertaining. The book would have needed to be twice as long to give more detail - which is unreasonable. People with no previous knowledge of the history of Ireland will come away with a reasonable grounding of how the Irish got to where they are today. There are many, many other books which will fill in the detail.
Really liked the format even though there is a lot of repeat from episodes. Wish there was more from 1960 on.
Amazing read, well worth any money you could spend.
