The Battle of Clontibret was not a crushing defeat or a great victory but it was hugely significant. The recently modernised Tudor English Army met the brand new modern Irish Army and they fought for between 5 and 8 hours and at the end of it everything had changed. It had its share of heroics and high drama but the impression it made on its participants is what makes it a particularly interesting encounter. I hope you enjoy reading about it.

These are the kind of write-ups that, had they been in one of the hobby magazines, I as a subscriber would have considered money well spent.25/09/2019 at 21:03 #123216

Good stuff! Poor old Bagenall always trying to resupply cut off forts in isolated spots, getting surrounded and harried. He should have taken the hint really and gone home – or joined his brother in law before the worst happened at Yellow Ford.
Any plans to game the battles?28/09/2019 at 10:34 #123394
He really should have but he was incandescent about his sister Mabel eloping with O’Neill. At one point he led troops to Armagh Cathedral in order to kidnap an expert in Canon Law to force him to annul the marriage. Said cleric scarpered before he got there.
Yes, I’m just finishing off a couple units and I’ve very slightly added to Hell Broke Loose rules by James Roach and then I’m good to game. I thought I might try the Battle of the Curlews first or stick with Clontibret since I’ve done the work on that one.
