Publisher's Summary

In the wake of its 30th birthday celebrations in 2006, BBC Radio Ulster marked the beginning of a new broadcasting era by embarking on the station's most ambitious project to date: a recounting of the history of Ireland. For easy digestion, the story of the island is told in a series of 240 short documentaries - starting with the Ice Age and the arrival of the first humans through to the outbreak of the Second World War.

Awesome book read by many narrators

I always wondered about the Irish "Troubles" so thought this book might explain it to me. I got so much more than I bargained for. A truly informative book. As trump would say.
