HAYES-McCOY, G.A. Profusely illustrated. Dublin: Academy, 1979. Quarto. pp. 240. Brown arlen, title in black on spine. A fine copy in very good dust jacket.
Since the dawn of Irish history, numerous wars, invasions, rebellions, political movements and upheavals have plagued our land; it is therefore to be expected that the history of Irish flags and emblems is a rich and varied one. The first full-length history of the use of flags and emblems by Irishmen traces the story from archival sources through to the victory of Clontarf, the Norman Conquest, the Cromwellian and Williamite wars and follows the 'Wild Geese' to France and Spain, to Austria/Hungary, the Germanic States and as far away as South America.
