Description: We are going on a long mysterious journey to find out what we can about the Island of Ireland... The Story of Ireland begins 'After the Ice' and lasts 9000 years. It tells the story of the whole island and its people. The book's 27 chapters chronicle the big picture of invasions, wars, Christianity, famine and a divided island, mixed with tales of Celtic head hunters, mysterious stone tombs, the Vikings, the black death, life in castles, the Titanic tragedy, music, mobiles and computers. When it ends a new story is just beginning. The Story of Ireland won the Irish Children's Book of the Year Award (Irish Book Awards) in 2008 and was in the International Youth Library's White Ravens 2008 selection. Available in both the original large format hardback and a pocket-sized hardback edition.
