Cenel Conaill and the Donegal Kingdoms, Ad 500-800 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The enormous influence of the Donegal kingdoms on Ireland as a whole during the early medieval period has generally been underestimated and misunderstood, says Irish archaeologist, historian, and museum director Lacey. He focuses on the Cenél Conaill kingdom, which was most dominant across the island for much of the period he covers. His main sources are the various texts knows as the annals. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

From roughly AD 500 to 1000, the kings of Tara were drawn from the dynasties known as the U Nill, which comprised a southern group based in the east midlands and a northern group originating from Donegal. About midway through this period there was a significant shift in the internal politics of Donegal, with consequent national repercussions. This book examines in detail those Donegal kingdoms, their monuments and landscapes. It results from thirty years of fieldwork and study by the author, and innovatively integrates the evidence of archaeology, history and ancient literature. The first two perhaps the first three genuinely historical figures described as kings of Ireland came from Donegal, as did influential early churchmen, Colum Cille and Adomnn. Through their initiation and development of the annals, the recording of Irish history might be said, arguably, to be a Donegal invention. This book puts all these important individuals and events into their political and cultu
