    The Earl of Essex wasn’t present but this is the battle that led him to the scaffold.  It was fought between a modern English Army and semi modernised Irish one.  It saw two spectacular set piece charges; one by the Irish Galloglaich, possibly their last winning one and one by the English cavalry up hill and across a bog that saved their army.

    If that sounds your cup of tea here’s the link to my blog post.

    Enjoyable post, thank you sir.  I really like how you present the overlap of new and old with the armies.  Quite an interesting time.  I’d have hated to be a pikeman with people shooting at me…

    Thanks DSG.  Yeah, you couldn’t do a damn thing about it unless your officer led out a sleeve of pike to chase them away.
