things might have been very different had the Irish chieftains banded together to fight the English who would ultimately destroy their way of life. Instead méféinism prevailed, with some fighting the English and others siding with them.

Two years later, in September 1600, the Irish forces of Hugh O'Neill, whom the English had made Earl of Tyrone, defeated the English army of Charles Blount, Lord Mountjoy, at the Battle of Moyry Pass. It would be the last major victory for the Gaelic chieftains of Ireland. You can read our article about it here: 'The O'Neill' Bedevils Mountjoy at Moyry Pass.

I wish to travel to Armagh next year and tour the battlefield by walking or bicycle. Is there a self guided walk I can access ?
