About midway through this period there was a significant shift in the internal politics of Donegal, with consequent national repercussions. This book examines in detail those Donegal kingdoms, their monuments and landscapes. It results from thirty years of fieldwork and study by the author, and innovatively integrates the evidence of archaeology, history and ancient literature. The first two - perhaps the first three - genuinely historical figures described as kings of Ireland came from Donegal, as did influential early churchmen, Colum Cille and Adomn n.

Through their initiation and development of the annals, the recording of Irish history might be said, arguably, to be a Donegal invention. This book puts all these important individuals and events into their political and cultural contexts.
