The Pope and King Billy versus King James — 6 Comments

  1. The Sham Fight at Scarva was always the day after the Twelfth – otherwise everyone who might attend would be somewhere else marching.

  2. I wonder would that be an interesting small volume – a list of brief lives of those on the “wrong side”.
    Casement, Tone, Childers, Ronnie Bunting v Gorman & the Pope.
    Redmond – could go on either side I suppose.

  3. Irish history has been written to show that those who died in the Great War were on the ‘wrong’ side – a version of history that has only been challenged in the past decade.
