Volume 1: A New Insight upon Irish History

This volume looks at the mythological origins and rise of the clan O'Byrne, and re-assesses the importance of its best-known figure, Feagh MacHugh O'Byrne. Perhaps the major figure in Irish history of his period, the time has come for him to be viewed in the proper context of the national and international scene. The volume finishes with the destruction of the Byrnes' Country in the seventeenth century.

With extensive genealogical tables, full bibliography and index of places.
