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.
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.
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.
