From the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 to the Downing Street Declaration of 1993, Britain and Ireland have been in mortal conflict over the sovereignty of the Emerald Isle. In this text, Tony Geraghty writes a full account of the tragic three-hundred-year war, tracing the path to today's weary peace. It is a history of England's ruthless aggression against her small Catholic neighbour and that tiny island's utter determination to oust the bullying intruder.
