Crisis and Survival in Late Medieval Ireland

The English of Louth and Their Neighbours, 1330-1450

Brendan Smith

  • Broadens the scope of study of late medieval Ireland
  • Places the Irish experience in the broader context of the realms of the English crown and enables a deeper appreciation of the extent to which English power extended beyond the borders of England in the late Middle Ages
  • Draws upon an unusually wide range of original source material
  • Gives due prominence for the first time to the careers of the individuals who formed the power elite within a medieval Irish county
  • Argues that in a highly regionalised society such as late medieval Ireland, local studies are key
