Anne Boleyn Henry Viii
1,081 wordsThe Dissolution of the Monasteries and the events which followed, were all brought about as a direct result of the break with Rome.

Irish Bagpipes Brian Boru Pipe
1,568 wordsIrish Bagpipes (Brian Boru pipe) The bagpipes have been a huge part of Irish music for many years. Today the bagpipe is synonymous with Scotland, but the pipes really came from Ireland.

As for Ireland, a seventh...
