      Product description Further Aspects of the History of Irish Dancing by Dr. John Cullinane continues his investigation into the intriguing history of Irish dance. Continuing from his earlier book 'Aspects of the History of Irish Dancing' he explores new areas through a series of thought provoking essays. Starting with the earliest forms of Irish dancing is difficult since references to Irish dancing in literature prior to the sixteenth century are few and vague, giving very little insight about the form of the dancing taking place. From the 's and on, literature indicates that a number of different large group dances were popular.

      This book provides a rich historical and ethnographic account of step dancing, step dancers, and Irish cultural institutions. Catherine Foley tells the story of step dance from its roots in. The book covers the history of Irish dancing festivals in the north. Pictured are Leslie Baird and sister Mandy from Mulholland School, Belfast. Photo courtesy of Leslie Baird.

What is known of pre-Christian Ireland comes from references in Roman writings, Irish poetry and myth, and archaeology. While some possible Paleolithic tools have been found, none of the finds are convincing of Paleolithic settlement in Ireland. However a bear bone found in Alice and Gwendoline Cave, County Clare, in may push back dates for the earliest human settlement of Ireland to.
