The Great Gaelic Revolt of the 1270s




This is the story of that rebellion, a fascinating medieval tale that has everything  from the crusading Knights Hospitaller to assassins, ambushes and much more.


After the Norman conquest of Ireland, the Wicklow region was surprisingly peaceful. Despite the fact the Gaelic Irish had been dispossessed, many appeared to be getting on with life and adjusting to Norman Rule.  This was deceptive and in 1270 a massive rebellion broke out deep in the Wicklow Mountains that would see settlement after settlement raided and burned.
