Historical Fiction set in Ireland

Post by gallowglass1580 » Sat January 4th, 2020, 4:15 pm

Hi all,

I am currently reading "The Wild Irish" by Robin Maxwell and am wondering does anyone here know of any novels within a similar historical time period in Ireland. (ie 16th century, contemporaneous with Tudor England)
I am very interested to see what's out there in this area.
Replies appreciated,
Kind Regards,

Hi, you could do a general search on Google, type in Historical Novels set in Ireland (and the period you're interested in) and see what comes up, or a website called Good Reads might also be useful.

Good luck.
