Battle of Thurles 1174 – Vengeance at Dawn – Irish Vs Normans

Seemingly Undefeatable Cambro/Anglo-Normans

In Thurles Co. Tipperary the seemingly undefeatable Cambro/Anglo-Normans were soundly defeated by an Irish force led by the King of Thomond Donald Mór O’Brien. Finally in 2001, a modest plaque was raised to mark and remember this great battle in 1174. It ignited the spark of hope in the Irish and word of the defeat spread quickly into the Norman held areas of the Eastern Ireland that even Dublin seemed likely to fall. Could the grey Invaders be pushed back into the Irish sea?
