'The history of the Kings of Aileach and their encounters with the Vikings for more than two centuries is presented in a very readable style. It is a superb narrative, supported by extensive footnotes. The book is illustrated with several maps and a fine collection of colour photographs. The range of research is impressive and the book represents an outstanding contribution to our knowledge of Viking history and its importance for our complex Norse-Irish heritage and the ultimate collapse of the Uí Néill line of High Kings of Ireland.' Sean Beattie, Donegal Annual 2020
