The history of Ireland has long been a topic at the forefront of debate and one that continues to raise emotions and be the cause of much dispute. Interest in Irish culture, politics, and society, both ancient and modern, never seems to falter, not only in scholarly circles but also among the general public.
Now in its second edition, the Companion continues to offer a comprehensive and authoritative guide to all aspects of the Irish past from earliest times to the present day. Traditional topics such as the rebellion of 1798 and the Irish Civil War sit alongside entries on newly developing areas such as women's history and popular culture. The text has updated and revised to take into account recent research and events.
In addition to A-Z entries, the Companion includes a section of maps showing the shape of modern Ireland, post-reformation ecclesiastical divisions, political divisions circa 800, Ireland circa 1350, Ireland in the late 15th century, and the pattern of transport and communications throughout the country.
