Historical dictionary of Ireland by Colin Thomas( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides information not only on the misty isle of quaint villages and rolling hills familiar to tourists and consumers of photographic essays, but also the dynamic economy, highly education youth, lively and often deadly politics, and support for the European Union within which Irish people actually live today. The coverage does not exclude the six counties in the north that are still under British occupation. Includes a chronology from 6,500 BC to the end of the IRA ceasefire in 1996. The extensive cross-referencing mitigates the lack of an index to the alphabetical articles. c. Book News Inc

Historical dictionary of Ireland by Frank A Biletz( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All places undergo change, but in few has this change been quite as sweeping as Ireland - both the independent Republic of Ireland and dependent Northern Ireland - so it is good to see where it is heading at present. Obviously, that has to be judged on the background of where it is coming from, not only over the past decade or so but over centuries and, indeed, millennia. This new edition of Historical Dictionary of Ireland is an excellent resource for discovering the history of Ireland. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, and an extensive bibliography. The cross-referenced dictionary section has over 600 entries on significant persons, places and events, political parties and institutions (including the Catholic church) with period forays into literature, music and the arts. This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Ireland
