To Hell or Connaught

In 1641 the Gaelic Irish revolted against the English government and formed a rebel assembly known as the Confederation of Kilkenny.  The insurrection  was crushed mercilessly by Cromwell’s army.  Large scale confiscation of land followed and owners of around 11m acres of land were driven and their property given to Protestant colonists.  The Galic Irish were told to re-settle north of the Shannon in Connaught or they would be put the sword and their souls condemned by the Puritans to Hell
