The book presents more than 300 traditional recipes from all over Ireland, both country and town, served at all kinds of occasions, including country fairs, markets and dances, Hallowe’en, Easter and Christmas celebrations, and religious ceremonies, weddings, christenings and wakes.

The Vikings in Ireland and Beyond

The Vikings In Ireland

These Scandinavians were known both as great warriors and sailors who travelled in long ships. They started their raids in France, Britain and then to Ireland in AD 790. The isolated island monasteries made easy and fruitful pickings for these raiders. Initially they only attacked within 20 miles of the coast and only later did they start to move further inland. The first recorded Viking attack took place in Ireland in AD795. They lasted for several decades and they managed to establish base camps in Dublin, a major port. The Gaelic Ireland they invaded found itself without any political structure to face such a well organized and aggressive foe.

With a sound base they then began about conquering Ireland; however the Irish Kings started a fight back and forced the Vikings to return and consolidate their positions in Dublin, Wexford, and Waterford. These various Viking settlements began to develop into small kingdoms of their own throughout Ireland, and just compounded the existing series of power struggles, that already existed between the various kings. Once the Vikings started to settle in Ireland, they did of course become more prone to attack from the already feuding kings.

In AD 914 a huge Viking presence arrived in Waterford and a new campaign began, where they attacked Munster and Leinster and defeated the Ui Neills. The Viking age lasted until the 11th Century and they introduced money to Irish society. The fact that they had settled in Ireland meant that they actually contributed to Irish society, not only through coinage, but also in advanced shipping techniques and in trading.

Until the Vikings had introduced a currency the main bartering tool was cows. Not only did they provide food and hides, but they were also heavily used for buying, selling and the exchange of goods. There is even today a strong sense of the Viking influence, especially in Dublin. There is a very good Viking tour that takes place there and if you have the opportunity, it is worth taking this to understand how the River Liffey in Dublin, made the Viking attacks possible.

The Vikings in Ireland, how the Vikings influenced art, trade and the growth of cities

The Vikings in Ireland

The Vikings in Ireland

In Irish history the Vikings are often seen merely as attackers, but this book gives an account of the wider picture – how the Vikings significantly influenced Irish art and trade and the growth of towns and cities. It describes their first landing as a raiding party, and their settlement and gradual merging with the Irish by intermarriage and trade, and also explores the customs and traditions, and the arts and crafts which have become part of the Irish way of life. Cameos of the lives of individual Vikings – some real, some fictitious – are used in the retelling of events, and the illustrations include photographs of excavations and artefacts.
