    Saint Patrick was taken prisoner from his family home in Britain by Irish raiders and was brought to Ireland to work as a shepherd.

    The Vikings first launched their attack on Ireland in 795AD. And in 837AD, 60 Viking Dragon warships appeared at the mouth of the River Liffey. Five years later, Dublin was taken under force, but the Vikings were attacked by the local Irish and fled. They returned 17 years later. The Kings Palace stood on the present Dublin Castle.

  • In the latter half of the 18th century, one of the most important architects in the country was the London-born James Gandon.

    Gandon came to Ireland in 1781. By this time the palladian style had evolved further, and the strict rules of mathematical ratio and axis dictated by Palladio had been all but abandoned, this subsequent evolution is generally referred to as Georgian architecture. It is in this style that large parts of Dublin were rebuilt, causing the city to be referred to as Georgian Dublin

    The Custom House and the Four Courts are neoclassical 18th century buildings in Dublin

  • The Four Courts, Dublin

  • The latter half of the 19th century was a period of tragedy in Irish history.

Over two million people emigrated to countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
