Four Courts Press: 20% off two medieval history titles
The Geraldines & Medieval Ireland – The making of a myth, editors Peter Crooks & Seán Duffy. Conquerors, castle-builders and colonizers, the Geraldines (or FitzGeralds) were the most celebrated dynasty in Ireland at the time of the Anglo-Norman invasion; their most celebrated member during the Middle Ages was Gearóid Mór, the Great Earl of Kildare.
In this 446-page book, some of Ireland's finest historians trace the history of the Great Earl's family from its origins to the 16th century, and offer fresh appraisals of the Geraldines and the importance of their legacy.
