Irish History

If we were to dig deep and explain  Irish History, considering the first known Settlement was around 8000bc, we would need a computer with bigger memory and you would need a year to read it. instead we will touch on a few interesting subjects and leave a few links for people interested in further reading which I believe they would enjoy.

In Short…..

The first settlement was around 8000bc, where hunter gathers came from continental Europe. Later The Neolithic people arrived from the Iberian Peninsula and built some famous sites such as  Newgrange.

With the depletion of the Bronze age in Ireland, spreading from the Alps, the Celtic Culture spread across Europe and arrived in Britain and Ireland around 500bc and within a couple of hundred years, the Bronze age had disappeared and the Celtic Culture spread around the whole Island.

This stayed this way until the arrival of Saint Patrick and other christian missionaries around mid-5th century and by 600 AD Ireland was now a christian country, and the Celtic Pagan Practice slowly disappeared or went underground.

From 700AD, with invasion after invasion by the Vikings, the monastic culture succumbed havoc and devastation but still proved strong enough to survive the invaders. The Vikings settled all round Ireland and set up the city of Dublin.

Vikings Invading Ireland

1n 1169 the Normans then invaded Ireland under the command of Richard De Clare, nick-named Strongbow, marking the beginning of 700 years of Norman and later English Rule in Ireland. Again, this becomes a huge section in the History of Ireland and for people interested I suggest you Go here.

Not until 1922, after The War Of Independence, Ireland became The Free State and then the Republic in 1948 with the 6 Northern counties still been controversially part of Britain.
