Brian Boru: Ireland’s Legendary High King

Brian Boru, born in 941 AD, remains one of Ireland's most celebrated High Kings. Hailing from royal bloodlines in the northern region of Munster, Brian ascended from King of Munster to High King of Ireland. A devout Christian, he was a lover of music and chess.

During his reign, monastic settlements flourished, attracting the attention of marauding Vikings who coveted the precious treasures stored in these monasteries. Determined to rid Ireland of Viking incursions, Brian moved the seat of the High King from Tara to the Rock of Cashel. From this stronghold, he strategized his defense against the Vikings who, fortified by allies from the Isle of Man, Orkney Islands, and Scandinavia, made their stand at Clontarf. The pivotal Battle of Clontarf commenced on Good Friday, April 23rd, 1014. Although too aged to fight, Brian’s two sons led the Irish troops to a decisive victory, expelling the Vikings from Ireland. Tragically, Brian himself was slain during the battle.
