MunsterLeinster Inchiquin ConnachtUlster[edit]

Good day, random visitor. Like some primitive man I do not reveal my true name, at least when online, but here I call myself Inchiquin. My background is in history though I have an interest in a variety of subjects, including:

  • The Crisis of the 17th Century
  • History of Science and Technology 1500-1650
  • I have a side interest in issues related to the sharemarket

I have a particular interest in the history of the 16th & 17th Century.

Old men whose only weapon was the rosary were slain before the altars along with children and women...' This is from the Rinuccini Papers
