The Story of Ireland
by Brendan O’Brien
Who said Irish history had to be boring?
From axe man to phone man, here is the fascinating story of the island of Ireland.
The Story of Ireland by Brendan O’Brien takes children on a journey that spans 9000 years of Irish history. Beginning with the Ice Age and ending with an up to the minute evaluation of life in Ireland, listed as ‘New Century Top Stuff’, children will find just enough factual information presented in a novel and most appealing way on all the landmarks in the history of our country.
Each of twenty-seven chapters is bursting with colour, featuring photographs, maps and original full-colour illustrations, and is no more than two or three pages long.
“A fabulous mixture of facts and fun” Eoin
