OLIVER CROMWELL

 “God made them as stubble to our swords”

  • Cromwell was a strange mix of self-righteous godliness and utter cruelty.
  • On arriving in Ireland, he laid siege to Drogheda (September 11th, 1649). 2000 died in the massacre.
  • He proceeded to Wexford (October 2nd,1649). 2000 soldiers and 1500 townspeople were slaughtered.

“God, in his righteous justice, brought a just judgement upon them.”

  • On his journey from Drogheda to Wexford, Cromwell spent one or two nights at Killincarrig Castle, which had a small garrison of his men.
