Established in early Christian times by the successors of St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland , the diocese of Raphoe roughly shared the same borders as the ancient Kingdom of Tyrconnell and much of what later became County Donegal.

This large detailed work tells the history of how the Christian church interwove itself into the fabric of Irish society and politics over the centuries.
