Example text

For most of this period, until Tyrone's attempts to modernise it at the very end of the century, Irish warfare centred on skirmishing, setting on and falling back as needs dictated, and only closing on the enemy if they saw an advantage. Fynes Moryson described haw 'they dare not stand on a plain field, but always fight upon bogs and passes of skirts of woods, where the foot being very nimble come off and on at pleasure'. One English commander, Sir John Harington, wrote in 1599 that such tactics seemed to him more like 'a morris dance, by their tripping after their bagpipes, than any soldier-like exercise'.

He was just as aware of England's military potential as he was of Irish inability to fight a conventional war, and had decided that his one real hope was to prolong the conflict until it became just too expensive for the Crown to prosecute it any further. His plan, however, was defective on two counts: it failed to recognise Queen Elizabeth's determination; and it reckoned without a commander of Lord Mountjoy's calibre. Mountjoy formulated and put into effect a programme of measures designed to frustrate and exhaust Tyrone's forces, drawing heavily on the experiences of every earlier Tudor commander in Ireland.

B1: Galloglass, 15th century The armour of the galloglasses had remained virtually unchanged since their introduction into Ireland in the 13th century, comprising usually a helmet, mail pisane, and quilted cotun or mail hauberk (later usually both). Though the Hebridean tomb-slab on which this figure is based shows only a sword, galloglasses were invariably axe-armed in battle. B2: Galloglass, 1521 From Dürer's drawing. Note the curious upturned nasal of his helmet, an early appearance of similar nasals to be found in later prints (see D2 and E2).
