Genealogy Club:  Irish History I

Genealogy Club: Irish History I

Irish History I is an overview of Irish history from prehistoric times until the Flight of the Earls in 1607. Some of the topics covered include the megalithic tombs of Newgrange, the arrival of the Celts and St. Patrick, the invasions of the Vikings and the Normans and the effects of the plague and the Tudor rulers on the native Irish. 

Tom Toohey is a modern day Irish storyteller who has traveled to Ireland 19 times and collected hundreds of stories. He comes to this tradition naturally as his parents were great storytellers. In the last few years Tom has recorded his family stories in a four volume book called Images of Other Lives. For 40 years Tom was a teacher. He taught all levels from elementary school through graduate school as a public school teacher, adjunct professor and educational consultant. Tom has a B.S. from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and a M.M. from the University of Hartford.
