Summary
This new account of the galloglas --mercenary warriors from the Hebrides and West Highlands who settled in Ireland in the later 13th century and achieved extraordinary prominence on Irish battlefields throughout the 300 years following--is written from a decidedly Scottish perspective. The origins of the six kindreds--MacCabes, MacDonnells, MacDowells, MacRorys, MacSheehys, and MacSweeneys--are traced, and the circumstances that brought about their relocation to Ireland are investigated. The book also examines the galloglas as warriors, pointing to their distinctly Norse character and proposing their battle-fury as the last unmistakable echo of the Scandinavian impact on the Celtic west
