In In Search of Ancient Ireland, published by Ivan R. Dee in 2002, Carmel McCaffrey traced the history, archaeology, and legends of ancient Ireland from 9000 B.C. to the Norman invasion. Now, in an engaging sequel, Ms. McCaffrey tells the story of the struggle between English and Irish aspirations Within the centuries for the reason that first English incursions into Ireland Within the twelfth century. It is a narrative history filled with powerful personalities and families who fought in battle and through constitutional means to free Ireland from English regulate. With an extensive use of original sources―letters, personal accounts, and parliamentary documents―Ms. McCaffrey brings these individuals to life and tells their story. We meet the intrepid O’Neills, the colorful O’Donnells, the wily Fitzgeralds, and lots of others whose passion for freedom and for Ireland could not be conquered. The Irish, as the book recounts, struggled over many generations to carry on to ancient lands only to lose their fight Within the Elizabethan wars. Within the early 1600s the ancient Irish Brehon laws were extinguished, and it gave the impression as if the Gaelic past had been washed from memory. Yet the story of Irish determination didn’t end there. Other generations took up the effort to establish an Irish parliament free of English regulate that would answer the needs of all citizens. To this stirring history Ms. McCaffrey brings the similar adroitness that prompted Terry Golway of the New York Observer to name her first book “marvelous…fine storytelling and analysis.” With 25 black-and-white photographs and a map.
