A fresh take on Irish history, 9 May 2011
In the Story of Ireland Neil Hegarty achieves that rare balance of a highly engaging read and well researched rich, historical content. The book takes us through seminal points in Irish history through a fresh and well informed narrative, written with both humour and depth - the result an accessible book that I couldn't put down.
