The Norman invasion of the late 12th century marked the beginning of more than 800 years of direct English rule and, later, British involvement in Ireland Sons of Fortune. What he has given us is the first definitive biography of this important nineteenth-century Irish singer - a unique young woman who embodied all of the spirit, tenacity and perseverance of her race, and who made a very important contribution to Irish musical history A Charmed Circle. York was the heart of the Danelaw, the Viking kingdom in Britain. To this day, the lexicon of dialect speakers in the North and East Ridings of Yorkshire retains many words that derive from Old Norse. Scandinavian influence on the language does not stop with the end of the Danelaw, however: in the 19th and 20th centuries maritime trade and commerce in the North Sea and the Baltic brought many Danes, Norwegians and Swedes to ports like Hull and Newcastle Possession.

By 1840, fully 1/3 of Ireland's population was totally dependent on the potato for its nourishment. It was a dependency that teetered on the brink of starvation and created a time bomb that needed only the slightest spark to explode. The spark that lit the fuse was the arrival in September 1845 of the potato blight.
