The Story of Ireland, by Brendan O’Brien

A lovely illustrated short history of Ireland for younger readers, starting with prehistory and running up to (almost) the present day. Hits most of the highlights that you would expect in less than 100 pages, and I think does it in a way that would encourage kids to find out more and to relate to other things they knew about. A nice winner from my old friends at O’Brien Press.

  1. That’s useful to know, thanks. I’ve not looked closely at the documents (and recently marked an essay saying BBC1 started in 1936 or thereabouts that hadn’t felt right). Thanks for the correction.
