Deeds not Words


In Deeds Not Words: The survival of the Fitzmaurices Lords of Kerry 1550 to 1603, Listowel author Martin Moore examines the political and military roles of the Lords of Kerry and Barons of Lixnaw, in the Tudor years of 1550-1603. This work examines their involvement in local, national and international events of the sixteenth century, from their links to the Kildare revolt of the 1530s, through the Desmond rebellions (1569-1583) and the Nine Years’ War (1594-1603).
