This book is the first comprehensive study of medieval Derry. According to legend, Derry originated as a monastery founded by St Columba/ Colum Cille. That story was almost certainly a later rationalization and simplification of a complex reality arising from Derry's capture from the Cenel nEnnai kingdom in the late sixth century by the saint's people, the powerful Cenel Conaill.
