Publisher's Summary

Edward Rutherfurd's great Irish epic reveals the story of the people of Ireland through the focal point of the island's capital city. 

The epic begins in pre-Christian Ireland during the reign of the fierce and powerful High Kings at Tara, with the tale of two lovers, the princely Conall and the ravishing Deirdre, whose travails echo the ancient Celtic legend of Cuchulainn. 

From this stirring beginning, Rutherfurd takes the reader on a graphically realised journey through the centuries. Through the interlocking stories of a powerfully-imagined cast of characters - druids and chieftains, monks and smugglers, merchants and mercenaries, noblewomen, rebels and cowards - we see Ireland through the lens of its greatest city.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Without reservation or caveat I highly recommend this book along with its sequel, Ireland Awakening. The story lines are gripping, and the historical detail is fascinating. It is also flawlessly and superbly narrated by Patrick Moy. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is as good as London by the same author and better than Paris. If you are in any doubt whether or not to buy this book, doubt no longer. Get it! You won't be disappointed.

Intriguing but a little confusing

Whilst not as good as Sarum and London I still enjoyed this book.
Rather slow at the beginning it’s well worth persevering with as the story gets more interesting.
