New Battle of Clontarf Website

A new website has been created at Trinity College Dublin for students and the public to provide access to the historical and archaeological information and resources on the Battle of Clontarf, one of the most emblematic battles in Irish history.

This website includes a number of different sections that hope to enrich the reader’s understanding of life in Ireland in 1014, exploring daily life in Viking-Age Ireland, the key players of the battle and the political rivalries that led to Clontarf.

Dynamic interactive maps allow you to explore Viking raids and settlement development, Brian Boru’s military campaign and what happened on Good Friday, 2 April 1014.

Also check out the interactive timeline and remembering Clontarf section to see how Brian and the battle have been remembered in the thousand years since it occurred.
