The history of Ireland in 100 objects

By dfogarty - Posted on 14 March 2013

A free gift from the people of Ireland to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and Ireland’s EU presidency 2013. A beautiful e-book explaining the history of Ireland in 100 objects, and it is free to download at the end of March.

The influence of Spain in the history of Ireland is just one fascinating aspect of the book, which features two notable items with a Spanish connection, a Salamander pendant from the shipwrecked Spanish Armada, and a late sixteenth-century helmet, which is symbolic of Spain’s military aid to the Gaelic chieftains of Ireland.
