Battle of Aughrim;
Battlefield site from an aerial perspective

This aerial photo shows the battle site with Aughrim village slightly above and left of centre. The Battle of Aughrim was fought on 12th July 1691 between the Jacobite army with approx 23,000 troops and the opposing Williamite army numbering around the same but with the added advantage of having twice as many canon. Ginkel won the day for the Williamites while the leader of the Jacobites ( St Ruth) was killed by canon fire.
The result of the battle was 9,000 dead. This followed other victories such as The Battle of the Boyne ( 1690) which culminated and then led to the Treaty of Limerick and the Penal Laws.
