This chapter traces the history of Ireland in the time of the Vikings. It discusses the shift in power relations within Ireland which came about soon after the appearance of the Vikings, who first assailed the shores of Ireland in 795. It then considers the extensive narrative literature describing the time before and during the conversion to Christianity, followed by a discussion of the Irish mission in Europe.
