Vikings, Brian Boru and the battle of Clontarf

For those interested in the history of medieval Dublin, 2014 marks the millennium of one of the most important events in medieval Ireland.

The Battle of Clontarf in April 1014 was hugely significant in medieval Ireland and this year’s Friends conference is dedicated to exploring the context, course and legacy of the battle of Clontarf and Ireland’s most famous medieval king Brian Boru.

This free conference will run for TWO DAYS and will be packed full of papers presented by the foremost experts on this period of Ireland’s history, making this year’s symposium a must-see for all enthusiasts of medieval Ireland.
