Viking Fact 29

Vikings started to raid the north and west coasts of Ireland in 795 AD. By 840 AD they had moved inland along the major river systems where they built fortified bases from which the launched their plundering missions. Their primary targets were the monasteries which ironically factored into the Vikings in Ireland adopting Christianity by the end of the 10th century.
