My very thought Guy.  It would seem that cavalry fighting got a lot more deadly.  For the Irish they had to get close enough to risk a deadly wound to have any hope of killing their enemy.  For the English they had to let their enemy get close to kill them before firing.  I’d imagine a lot of fellows found it expedient to shoot or throw a dart or two at a safe(ish) distance.  Leaders couldn’t do that.  It does make you think.
