In Search of Ireland's Heroes: The Story of the Irish from the English Invasion to the Present Day
"The struggle between English and Irish aspirations for Ireland began with the first English incursions into the country in the twelfth century and have persisted to the present day. Carmel McCaffrey's narrative history of these times is filled with powerful personalities and families who fought - in battle and through constitutional means - to free Ireland from English control. Her book is a sequel to In Search of Ancient Ireland, which traced the history, archaeology, and legends of ancient Ireland from 9000 B.C. to the Norman invasion."--BOOK JACKET.
