Ascendancy

This word has been applied to the period of Protestant British domination of Ireland from the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 until the end of the Victorian era. The story of this period is found in the second book of Rutherfurd's Irish saga, from the 'Ascendancy' chapter onwards.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first escalator England had ever seen was installed at Harrods in London on November 16th, 1898 to much fanfare, fascination and fear ! The moving staircase was such a strange and scary experience for people that Harrods began offering smelling salts and Cognac at the top in order to calm people after their terrifying ride.
