Edward Ruadh Butler is the author of the acclaimed Swordland (Accent Press, 2015), a historical fiction based on the events of the Norman Invasion of Ireland in 1169. The second part of the story, Lord of the Sea Castle (Accent Press, 2017), will be published next year. Butler’s Anglo-Norman ancestor, Theobald Walter, arrived in Ireland during another Norman campaign in 1185 and was named Chief Butler to the Lord of Ireland, a court position from which his descendants derive their surname.
