A Timeline of Irish History

Lora O'Brien Provides a Clear Overview of the History of Ireland Through the Ages

  Enroll in Course

Online Class which provides students with a clear overview of the different time periods in Ireland, in order, and the major (and some minor, but important) events that have shaped Irish culture and people through the historical ages of Ireland.


Ireland has a long and sometimes wild history, and much of it has been recorded, researched, and studied, and so is available... but mostly only to academics. Unfortunately what is accessible to the general population is often biased, misunderstood, skewed and manipulated to serve the agenda of popular opinion.

In this class, Lora O'Brien applies a professional historian's methodology (of external examination, internal examination, and synthesis) to a guided tour through the ages of Ireland, from beginning to present day, providing an authentic, accessible, and easy to understand timeline view of Irish History.

This teaching is suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience in this area. You do not need to have any prior academic knowledge or training to understand and benefit from this class.
