Ever since 1155, when the pope had authorised King Henry II to invade Ireland, there was at least the possibility that the Normans would find another outlet for their ruthless energy and drive. When hat became a reality less than twenty years later, with a series of invasions culminatingwith that of Henry II in 1171, the feudal lordship of Ireland was establis hed under the English Crown. In 1254 a royal charter formally pronounced that this lordship was inalienable and that it could never be separated from the Crown. Ireland was henceforth linked with England through the person ofthe king. The essays in this book aim to explore some aspects of this link . They are varied in theme, just as they are scattered in time. Some periods receive special stress, and some aspects figure prominently. In part thisis the result of the specialist interests of the different contributors an d to some extent, too, it derives from the nature of the sources available to the historian of medieval Ireland." - from the dustjacket.
