1014: Brian Boru & the Battle for Ireland
1014: Brian Boru & the Battle for Ireland | Morgan Llywelyn
1 post | 1 read | 5 to read
The date was Good Friday, April 23rd in the Year of Our Lord 1014. The most ferocious battle ever fought in Ireland was about to begin... In the three decades since Morgan Llyweyln wrote the bestselling novel Lion of Ireland, she has studied the legendary life of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland. Often dismissed as a mythical figure, as all the known facts about him are contained within the several Irish annals. But thirty years of research have led Llyweyln to conclude with certainty that Brian Boru actually lived, a great battle took place in 1014: and Ireland won. Read about the life of Brian Boru and the battle that changed the course of Irish history in this exciting and accessible account.

This is a great history book about Brian Boru, high king of Ireland, and the Battle of Clontarf. It's done with a novelist's prose, but a historian's insight. Lots of good resources at the end for further reading.
