Library Seminar: Remembering Hugh O'Neill, 1616-2016
Thu 1 December 2016, 09:30 – 16:00 GMT
Fostered in the Pale after his father’s murder on Shane O’Neill’s orders, Hugh O’Neill, c. 1550-1616, 2nd earl of Tyrone, is portrayed alternately as charismatic, Machiavellian, a ruthless opponent, a skilled negotiator, a power seeker par excellence, an innovator. He died at Rome on 20 July 1616. On the four-hundredth anniversary of the passing of the last of the earls, our seminar will assess O’Neill ─ the man, his milieu, Ulster in the 1600s, his many battles and his ultimate capitulation.
