Sihtric Cáech: Scourge of the Irish

History Documentaries

It was during the year 917 that two autonomous war fleets of Norsemen and Danes sailed out from their strongholds across the Irish Sea in England and Scotland and set forth for Ireland. It had been 15 years since they had been expelled from their strongholds in and around Dublin by a coalition of native Irishmen intent on reclaiming their lands, and now after building up their forces once more, they sought to reconquer the rich trading port first established by their ancestors over one hundred years before.
