Accounts are given of the Viking raids, the arrival of Strongbow and the final dismantling of Gaelic Ireland, with the defeat of the great Ulster Chieftains, the O'Neills and O'Donnells, at the Battle of Kinsale in 1607. As well as the history and topography of Inishowen, we learn of its archaeology. The cairns, burial sites, standing stones, druidic temples and forts conjure up its pre-Christian era.
