The 1316 battle of Athenry was one of the bloodiest battle fought in medieval Ireland, in a time of occupation, invasion, natural disasters, and famine. It was the last and first serious concerted effort to evict the English from west of the Shannon, re-establish the kingdom of Connacht, and perhaps re-established a Gaelic kingship of Ireland.

The talk is given by Galway historian, Adrian Martyn, whose book "The Tribes of Galway 1124-1642" is due out this autumn.
