A history of the period spanning the two centuries after the Norman conquest of Ireland and end of the Tudor dynasty, during which the Anglo-Normans and the later Anglo-Irish had coalesced to form a new confident and vibrant Ireland.
The author argues that it was because of this success that Henry VIII and later his daughter Elizabeth I had to undo their closest economic, cultural and political rival.
