John de Courcy, Prince of Ulster

John de Courcy, Prince of Ulster

9 May 2015 10:00AM - 9 May 2015 4:00PM

Description: This course is an examination of the background, career and achievements of the first Anglo-Norman conqueror of Ulster. By looking at John’s origins this course will aim to explain why he chose to launch his invasion of the north of Ireland in 1177. It will examine the Battle of Downpatrick and John’s subsequent establishment of his lordship of Ulster, including a look at his subsequent military campaigns and political alliances. John’s patronage of the church was a crucial aspect of his new territory – he commissioned an influential history of St Patrick – and the course will consider foundation of monasteries such as Inch and Greyabbey. We shall also consider John’s principal castle at Carrickfergus and the power and influence it represented.
Venue: This class will take place in the Dobbs Room, Carrickfergus Civic Centre, 11 Antrim Street, Carrickfergus BT38 7DG
