It is a subject about which much is talked, but little is known, and even that little is only to be found in volumes that are not easily accessible to the general reader.

In the present work the history of the Schools and Scholars of Celtic Erin is traced from the time of St. Patrick down to the Anglo Norman Invasion of Ireland. The first three centuries of this period is certainly the brightest page of what is, on the whole, the rather saddening, but not inglorious record, of our countrys history. It was not by any means a period altogether free from violence and crime, but it was certainly a time of comparative peace and security, during which the religious communities scattered over the island presented a more beautiful spectacle before men and angels, than anything seen in Christendom either before or since.

It is an epoch, too, whose history can be studied with pleasure and profit, and in which Irishmen of all creeds and classes feel a legitimate pride.
