From the uncertain first dawn of human presence on the island, to the defeat of the old Gaelic order at Kinsale in 1602, Hector McDonnell chronicles the lost origins of Ireland's ?otherness'. This scholarly take on Ireland's past derives from our prehistoric connections deep within Europe, the Mediterranean and beyond a unique set of circumstances that gave early Irish culture its distinctive character and style.

Dublin's other poetry : rhymes and songs of the city by John Wyse Jackson( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
"Dublin's writers rarely remain solemn for long: their wicked sense of humour has travelled the world. This is an irresistible new anthology of what used to be called 'comic and curious verse' about the city, written by some of her most entertaining poets and songwriters." "Fashions in verse come and go. Too often we forget - paradoxically - the most memorable works of wit, sarcasm or absurdity. The ones gathered here were written over four centuries, and were inspired by many things - among them love, injustice, history, politics, animals and alcohol, but most of all by the citizens of Dublin themselves. Whether the lines are satirical, sentimental, subversive, sexy or just plain silly, you will find that many of them show a rare seriousness as well." "Each poem comes with background information about where it originated, and each page is illuminated by Hector McDonnell's wonderful, witty drawings."--Jacket

ULSTER' S OTHER POETRY proves that the people of Ulster have never been humourless or dour. Far from it.
