The Flowering of. Ireland; Saints, Scholars, and Kings" by Katherine Scherman. It's the book that got me hooked on Ireland, its history and culture. Better than "How the Irish Saved Civilization". Legends in the Landscape Pocket Guide to Árainn. Inis Mór, Aran Islands by Dara Ó Maoildhia. I have a personal and growing collection of the early travel writers. Those who traversed the country from the 1800s onwards.
Scherman begins with the Stone Age and goes up to the Norman Conquest. Scherman ""concentrates"" on the period from the 8th through the 12th century . In between she covers the prehistoric ruins of Newgrange and Carrowkeel, La TÃ¨ne Celtic culture, the Ulster Cycle of heroic tales, the Brehon Laws, the Tuatha De Danann (pagan gods), the coming of Christianity, Irish monasticism, the poetry, theology, architecture, illuminated manuscripts of the early Middle Ages, the Viking invasions, et. etc.
There are many other more modern pieces on Ireland, but I prefer nothing later than Middle Ages and before Britain laid claim to this land.
