Terry Deary – Ireland | Review

Title: Ireland

Author: Terry Deary

Type: Non-Fiction

Page Count: 192

Rating: 4.25/5

This has probably been my favourite of the Horrible Histories books that I’ve recently read through, mainly because I didn’t know a huge amount about Irish history other than the potato famine and the Troubles.

This taught me a lot about some of the earlier stuff and covers Ireland BC and during the Middle Ages, as well as the more recent stuff. My only real complaint would be the fact that because it was published back in 2000, it doesn’t cover any of the last 20 years. It would have been cool to have talked about the abortion law change.

All in all though, I did enjoy reading it and I’d definitely recommend it if you’re interested in Irish history. I’d like to follow it up with something else, preferably something aimed at a sort of GCSE level and written by a native Irishperson. There’s a lot of great stuff here, even though it’s aimed at children and parents, and I’m glad that I picked it up. It’s one that’s good for both kids and adults.
