For all you long term readers of the Eneclann newsletter you will remember that between 2009 and 2011, ourselves and Rubicon worked on the Irish Battlefields Project.

Historians from Eneclann and archaeologists from Rubicon researched 250 major battles in Ireland between the 8th and 18th Centuries. Using contemporary sources including maps and drawings we successfully identified 130 of these battlefields across Ireland.battle of knockdoe  1501 image for blog 2 We intend to publish the Irish Battlefields in 2015, and will tell you all about it as it happens. Right now though, for those who would like to get a taste of what’s to come.

“The battle of Knockdoe was one of the greatest battles ever fought on Irish soil, but is now forgotten because of the passage of time”
