The Flight of the Earls: A Popular History

The Flight of the Earls: A Popular History

Liam Swords

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

When some ninety-nine persons, led by Hugh O'Neill , Earl of Tyrone and Rory O'Donnell, Earl of Tyrconnell, sailed from Rathmullen County Donegal on 14 September 1607, it was destined to be probably the most momentous event in the history of the island of Ireland.

The flight paved the way for the plantation of Ulster, which introduced into that province Scots Presbyterians a sectarian division which still after four hundred years, defies the best efforts of the British and Irish governments to resolve.

This compact history covers their entire fateful trip to the bitter end when O'Neill, the last to survive, died in 1616, still pleading for help from Spain.
