Aerial photo of
Knocknanuss Battle site

Aerial photo overhead Knocknanuss and west to Kanturk. This is the site of an almost forgotten battle from Irish history. In 1647, ironically this time the Catholic forces were an unlikely confederacy of English royalists loyal King Charles and Irish Catholics with allegiances to Rome. This army of 7000 was led by Viscount Taffe. The opposing force comprised 5000 troops was an English republican army ( Cromwell's parliamentarians ) under Lord Inchquin on their way to Limerick from Cork. The battle lasted little over an hour but resulted in over 4000 dead and a victory for Inchquin.
