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 http://www.eu2013.ie/100objects/)until 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.
