The story of the Battle of Clontarf, fought almost a thousand years ago on April 23, 1014, is an inspiring one. It is a tale of ambition, determination, courage, and sacrifice. Although the history of the battle has often been misrepresented, it is without doubt one of the most important events to have taken place in medieval Ireland. The battle was not just influential in Irish history, it also had a major impact on the subsequent history of the jarldom of Orkney - a Scandinavian power that lay to the north and west of medieval Scotland. Brian Boru emerges from the pages of this illustrated book, not as the great reforming high-king of legend, but as a still highly ambitious and intelligent monarch, whose steely resolve led his army to victory on the Clontarf battlefield during that Good Friday in 1014. *** "McGettigan's book expertly delivers the downtempo pace of travel and communication across that ancient world - concepts alien to our expectations of instant everything. Yet after 1,000 years, the Battle of Clontarf still resonates with people, thanks to volumes like this one that delineate the eternal importance of alliances and resources - prime factors that figure in every war, everywhere."˜~ The Celtic Connection, November 2013
