In young O'Donnell himself more especially, it engendered feelings of exasperation and irreconcilable hatred; and it was one of the causes of the O'Neill war which brought unmeasured woe and disaster to both English and Irish. Incommemorating the anniversary of the arrival of O'Donnell in Galicia, the Grammy-award winning composer of RiverdanceBill Whelanbrought together the best musicians of Ireland and Galicia and released the symphony "From Kinsale to Corunna". En route, true to his family arms and Constantinian motto In Hoc Signo Vinces and in anticipation of the battle to come at Kinsalehe visited and venerated a supposed relic of the True Cross Holy rood on the Feast of St. Within the United States, you may freely copy and distribute this work, as no entity individual or corporate has a copyright on the body of the work.

    Here he was placed in a secluded cottage, where he remained for a time under cure, till a young chief named Turlogh O'Hagan, a trusty messenger from Hugh O'Neill earl of Tyrone, came for him. The council were delighted at his capture; and for the better security they shackled him and his companions in the prison with heavy iron fetters. He is also a major character in Brian Friel 's play Making History. Art O'Neill was dead, and O'Donnell was with difficulty restored to consciousness.

    However, in the next two years, O'Donnell and O'Neill were hard pressed with the deployment of thousands more English troops in the country. They all then proceeded to demolish the storehouses and the strong habitations; and they carried away all the goods and valuables that were in them. Although Ineen Dubh pushed the case for Hugh Roe to succeed, it was his elder half-brother Donnell who emerged as the leading candidate. The captain entered Lough Swilly and anchored opposite the castle of Rathmullen, where the boy lived with his foster father Mac Sweeny.

Life of Hugh Roe ODonnell, Prince of Tirconnell book

Their effort on the morning of the 24th to raise the siege by an attack on Mountjoy's lines, was a failure, and the Spaniards were obliged to capitulate on the 2nd January. He is also a major character in Brian Friel 's play Making History.

Perrott's plan for entrapping young Red Hugh was skilfully concocted and well carried out. He was buried in the chapter of the Franciscan monastery in Valladolid. The remaining part of his army burned and ravaged the territory, from the town of Athenry and Rath-Goirrgin Westwards to Rinn-Mil and Meadhraige, and to the gates of Galway, and burned Teagh-Brighde, at the military gate of Galway.

O'Donnell escaped briefly in but was recaptured within days. They crossed the Liffey at a deep and dangerous ford just beside Dublin, which had been left unguarded.

Niall Garve's support allowed the English to land a seaborne force at Derry in the heart of O'Donnell's territory. O'Donnell raided Connachtdestroying the town of Athenrylaying waste to much of County Galwayand on being refused entry to Galwayburned its suburbs: " They next reached Mellifont, where resided a friend, Sir Garrett Moore, a young Englishman, with whom they remained for the night; and in the evening of the following day set off with a fresh pair of horses.

They pushed on till far in the night; when being at last quite worn out, they took shelter in a thick wood, somewhere near the present village of Roundwood, where they remained hidden during the remainder of the night. Their greatest victory came two years later however at Battle of the Yellow Ford on the Blackwater River near the southern border of Tyrone in August Their founder and namesake of the kingdom, Conall Gulbanhad been the first nobleman converted by St.

They remained that night in the town. Scholars believe, and we concur, that this work is important enough to be preserved, reproduced, and made generally available to the public.

At Mellifont they rested one night in the house of a friendly Englishman, pushed boldly through Dundalk, crossed the Fews, and on the third day reached Armagh.

The war dragged on through the summer ofand in September, Hugh attacked Niall Garv O'Donnellwho with some English troops occupied the old monastery of Donegal. As his family were rising rapidly into importance, and their influence was dreaded by the Anglo-Irish Government, young Hugh was one of those marked for capture by Sir John Perrot, in carrying out his policy of holding hostages for the good behaviour of the Irish chiefs In the summer ofan armed vessel laden with Spanish wine was sent round from Dublin to Lough Swilly, and anchored off Rathmullen, near which it was known O'Donnell was sojourning with MacSweeny, his foster-father.

The chi-rho was adopted on a banner, the labarumupheld on a vexillumwhich resembled a Christian cross, and in time the motto became associated with the Cross all over Europe. Neither was it of any avail when Mac Sweeny rushed to the point of shore nearest the ship, and cried out in the anguish of his heart, offering any amount of ransom and hostages.

Inwhen Hugh O'Neill went openly into rebellion, O'Donnell threw himself heartily into the struggle. Within the United States, you may freely copy and distribute this work, as no entity individual or corporate has a copyright on the body of the work.

Donnell was strengthened by the arrival of a small detachment of Royal Irish Army troops dispatched from Dublin under John Connill. Hugh O'Donnell and his two companions, the brothers Art and Henry O'Neill, were the only prisoners ever to successfully escape captivity in Dublin Castle.

Next day they came to the city of Armagh, where they remained in concealment for one night. It was not easy to enumerate or reckon the quantities of copper, iron, clothes, and habiliments, which they carried away from the town on the following day.

So, very unwillingly, his companions left him in a wood and pursued their journey, all but one servant who went for aid to Castlekevin, a little way off, near the mouth of Glendalough, where lived Felim O'Toole, one of Hugh's friends, who at once took steps for his relief.

At this point, O'Neill did not join O'Donnell in open rebellion, but secretly backed him to enhance his bargaining power with the English. This demoralised his supporters despite his pledge he would return with twenty thousand Spanish soldiers by the next Spring.

He had numerous brothers and sisters including DonnellRory and Cathbarr. This demoralised his supporters despite his pledge he would return with twenty thousand Spanish soldiers by the next Spring. It is likely that corruption played a part in his escape, and he was assisted by the Lord Deputy William FitzWilliam.
