Irish History Online

There is unfortunately no really dependable scholarly history of Ireland yet available on the internet, but the following links all provide some coverage (often with a strong point of view included) of part or all of Irish history.



My own brief timeline of Irish history

Introduction to Irish History -- A general PowerPoint presentation created for my modern Irish literature courses.

Wikipedia's History of Ireland pages -- Some of the entries are quite detailed and up-to-date. See also the History of Northern Ireland entry.

Prehistoric and Celtic Ireland and History of Ireland, 500-1998 -- The most complete general history available online. Some sections of this online history have been rewritten in a continuing attempt to update these pages--CLICK HERE to see the new sections.

Jerry Desmond's Concise History of Ireland



Irish History in Maps--Interesting site

A City Is Born: The History Of Dublin Ireland--This web page, suggested by teacher Cassandra McVey and her students, provides information on the history of Dublin, as well as a number of useful links to other sites.
