  1. 🚩 Play Bellwright now:

    🚩 Due to popular request we are heading back to Ireland with the Battle of the Yellow Ford. Fought on 14 August 1598 during the Nine Years' War in Ireland, a Gaelic Irish army under Hugh O'Neill of Tyrone met the English crown expeditionary force under the command of Henry Bagenal, marshal of Ulster.

    The battle greatly escalated the war. English Crown poured more men and materiel into the conflict, while more Irish lords joined O'Neill's alliance. The Nine Years' War in Ireland, previously fought mostly in Ulster, would soon become a struggle against English control over Ireland as a whole.

  2. When Chicago was lobbying for the Olympics, camp Randall was one of two stadiums that were likely to be the cremony host site.

    To be the host stadium, you need to have a capacity of
    75,000. Soldier field only holds 61,500. Other stadium considered was Notre Dame.

  3. England, an abstract noun and thus existing only as a conception in the minds of men, cannot attempt anything, never mind an invasion of Ireland. I think a discussion of the greater political context, the violent threat posed by Catholicism to Protestant England (cf. The Armada, The French Wars of Religion, The Massacre of Paris, Eighty Years War in Holland, etc.), rather than a reduction of the circumstances to, "colonial plantation" would be beneficial. It could equally be said of the Irish Scots who migrated from Ulster to Argyll (ultimately replacing Pictland with Scotland) that they too, were "colonial plantation". Using such language without context is not helpful. In reality, it's misleading.
