Medieval and modern myths accrued to Ireland's Iron Age Queen Maeve (Medb), notably in Rosalind Clark's 'The Great Queens', led to this redemption of Medb's true identity. Clark alone showcased the divine elements and tragic qualities on which the greatness of the medieval 'Tain Bo Cuailnge' rested, enabling us to fully appreciate Ireland's greatest national epic. Nevertheless, a seismic shift had taken place in the retelling of Medb's story which elevated the 'Tain Bo Cuailnge' to the level of a Greek-style Odyssey. Medb's archaic history was deliberately suppressed as she underwent gross character assassination. Her true pristine identity is finally recovered here.

"O Connor's research and photographs are unprecedented in any account of Irish history. This scholarly work is real Irish History - not the romantic myth of Gaelic High Kings of Ireland based at Tara. It should be compulsory reading for any student of Irish history" ( Kindle book review).

"This book is not only of Irish significance, for its revelations should result in a reinterpretation of prehistoric and early historic Europe. Academics and experts in archaeological, nomenclature and allied fields must study what can only be a very important discovery. I await their interpretations of its findings with excited anticipation" (Hugh W.L. Weir, historian and publisher, Ballinakella Press, Whitegate, Co. Clare, Ireland).

"What can I say! This has to be the most informative work on early Ireland. I have a burning desire to learn about the people I descend from. All has been explained and expanded on to such a degree with accuracy that many other history books seem to be guesswork and fairy tales. What a great book!" (Michael Geraghty, Victoria, Australia).

"Extremely interesting! This book's Flickr and Web sites ( ) are awesome and explain a lot" (Steve Cavanagh, Death Valley, California, USA).
