1600 Moyry Pass In September 1600, Lord Mountjoy, attempting to reach Armagh to establish a garrison, found the Moyry Pass barred by a series of trenches. Several attempts to break through resulted in serious losses by the English forces. Until later in the year, when O’Neill chose to cease defending it, the English were unable to penetrate the pass (15). 1601 Kinsale In September 1601, a Spanish force of fewer than 3,500 landed at Kinsale, which Mountjoy besieged with a force that by December had reached 7,500.

After Aughrim a siege began, led by Ginkel. On 3 October the treaty of Limerick was signed; Lieutenant-General Sarsfield surrendered the city and the Jacobite army was allowed to go to the Continent (17). 1795 Diamond From the 1780s there were constant skirmishes between Ulster Catholics and Protestants competing for land. In September 1795, at the Diamond in Armagh, an attack by 300 Catholic ‘Defenders’ on a meeting-place of the Protestant Peep O’Day Boys was repulsed by armed Protestants; forty Catholics were killed and afterwards a Protestant group founded the Orange Order as a defensive organization (18, XI).

O’Neill’s submission symbolized the end of the Gaelic lordship and a new period of complete English domination of Ireland. Although the Irish had fought with determination and uncharacteristic unity, and although in O’Neill they had a leader of unusual diplomatic cunning and military ability, the English had proved to be indefatigable in warfare. Elizabeth succeeded where her predecessors had failed. Although normally parsimonious in her dealings with Ireland, she was sufficiently pragmatic to see the need in the 1590s for enough money and manpower to ensure its subjugation.
