Podcast: The Nine Years War

Fighting in 16th century Ireland.

Podcast with Cathal Brennan and John Dorney, first broadcast on the Irish History Show. Following on from our show on the Desmond rebellions, this show covers the war of 1594-1603 in which Gaelic Ulster, under the leadership of Hugh O’Neill, was finally conquered by the English Crown.

*Erratrum: we referred to Mabel Bagenal as the former wife of Henry Bagenal. She was Henry’s sister and she eloped with Hugh O’Neill, much to the anger of Henry Bagenal.
