The Battle of Kinsale 1The battle of Kinsale (1601) marked the beginning of a cataclysmic epoch in Irish history. Within six years most of the greatest Irish lords had been forced to flee the country, leaving the Irish people almost leaderless and exhausted from war and conflict. This volume has its origin in the ‘Kinsale Winter School’ held in January 2002 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the battle. In 21 chapters and 10 appendices, 20 authors deal with the battle, its background, its participants, its consequences for Gaelic Ireland and its place in Irish history.
