5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read even if only covers up to Niall of the Nine Hostages !!!, 1 May 2013
This review is from: The Origins of the Irish (Hardcover)
Its not a well known fact that Ireland started on two different continents close to present day Australia, took millions of years to drift north before the two bits bumped into each other somewhere around the Equator and continued northward until it arrived at its present location hundreds of millions of years later.

This is a very readable book with lots of new information for the lay reader.As well, the author has a humerous touch which livens up the text whenever the opportunity presents. His summary of the mythical origins of the Irish is worth a read on its own.

The book accepts that the tools we have to look back so far into history will have their limitations but nonetheless outlines what the historical possibilities and probabilities are. We are told that archeology is weak in demonstating if Ireland was subject to successive people or culture changing invasions but the reader is invited to consider a range of possible options through the evidence that linguistics, DNA etc. might offer ..... even the possibility that "celtic" British tribes once has a stong presence in southern Ireland with the fior-Gaels in the North.

Hopefully this book will see the light of day in a paper-back edition before too long.
