The story begins in pre-historic Ireland, with primitive people, living by hunting and gathering. Domestication of animals came with the Celts, over three millenniums ago, a pastoral way of life, required laws. Laws required enforcement, thus a warrior-aristocracy evolved.

St. Patrick arrived in Ireland in 412 A.D, bringing Christianity to the Celts. The next 1600 years would see invasion by Vikings, Normans, the Tudors, Oliver Cromwell, and finally the British Empire in general. It would be a long struggle by a people determined to be free, only to be divided by secular differences, while trying to achieving nationhood.
