“This impeccably composed, immensely informative text is the only work of its kind to date and will undoubtedly be regarded as an essential publication by enthusiasts and researchers alike. The detailed yet accessible nature of the text means that it is an invaluable stand-alone publication and also contributes greatly to the larger corpus of Irish medieval research”. Clare Busher O’Sullivan, volume 29 (for 2020) of the Journal of Irish Archaeology

'The reprinting of Arrogant trespass: Anglo-Norman Wexford 1169-1400 ... is a testament to its continued value to scholars in understanding the invasion and colonisation of the twelfth to fourteenth centuries, not only in Wexford but also in other parts of the island, and it will be welcomed by many who have been finding it difficult to obtain a copy for their shelves ... This is a 'must read' for anyone interested in the period.' Archaeology Ireland, (Spring 2020).

'Arrogant trespass: Anglo-Norman Wexford 1169-1400 by the late Billy Colfer ... remains one of the standard works on the area and the period.' History Ireland (May-June, 2020)
