A CONCISE HISTORY OF IRELAND.

PART II.

IRELAND UNDER NATIVE RULERS.

(From the most ancient times to 1172.)

IN the beginning of this Second Part the narrative is legendary, like the early accounts of all other nations.

This period includes the Danish invasions, which never broke the continuity of the monarchy in Ireland as they did in England. It ended about 1172; for after that time there was no longer a supreme native king over Ireland.
