Hello Girls!

As you may already know, this year is the millennium of the Battle of Clontarf and there are lots of events and activities planned. One of these activities is a project competition that you have been invited to enter and you will have received a flyer from your class teacher.

This project is to be completed at home, but to help you with your research there is a list of websites below.  Remember that the Internet is a great tool for research, but you must ask a grown up in charge before you go online. Some websites contain adds and links that can move you off a good source for your research, so check with an adult before changing sites.

http://www.askaboutireland.ie/reading-room/environment-geography/island-life/scattery-island2/brian-boru/ (This website gives a history of Brian Boru’s life)

http://www.heritage-history.com/www/heritage.php?Dir=characters&FileName=boru.php (This site gives a nice short history)

http://www.scoilnet.ie/Vikings_Themepage.shtm (This site gives lots of information about the Vikings)


Don’t forget to check out your local library and the National History Museum.


Best of luck!
