While known for being fierce, the Viking age was hugely significant to the growth of Ireland and led to the establishment of many cities and towns across the East coast of the country.

It also led to a lot of new names being added to the popular Gaelic ones doing the rounds and even to this day Norse names are common in Ireland.
