Sample text

In August O’Neill and O’Donnell, with Ulster and Connacht troops, defeated Bagenal decisively at the Yellow Ford (9) and thus inspired risings throughout the country. Until April 1599 the English hesitated to make any move against the rebels, but in that month arrived Sir Robert Devereux, earl of Essex and favourite of the queen, with an army of over 17,000. His first action was to march south. On this march his army suffered from guerrilla attacks and disease, a combination that served to reduce his active troops by three-quarters, although it proved uneventful in that it yielded no opportunity for the major engagements he sought.

Richard FitzGilbert de Clare, called earl of Striguil and popularly known as Strongbow, was a leading Welsh baron. It had been his original agreement with MacMurrough in 1168 to lend military support in exchange for the succession to the kingship of Leinster that laid the foundations for the Norman invasion and gave it its Welsh character. Landing at Crook, Strongbow joined forces with le Gros to attack and take Waterford. They then joined MacMurrough, who confirmed the alliance by giving his daughter to Strongbow in marriage.

In October 1641 Sir Felim O’Neill, Rory O’More and Lord Maguire led a rising of native Irish. Although their plans to take Dublin failed, there was widespread revolt in Leinster and a takeover of the whole province of Ulster. The resulting bloodshed and destruction were considerable, although subsequently exaggerated out of all proportion by the Dublin government for propaganda purposes. The government responded with panic and incompetence; although it was promised reinforcements by the English parliament, the timescale was too long to enable it to take effective action.
