HAYES-McCOY, G.A: A History of Irish Flags from earliest times.


1 in stock

Profusely illustrated. Dublin: Academy, 1979. Quarto. pp. 240. White card in pictorial dust jacket. A very good copy.

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.
