Deeds Not Words, The Survival of the Fitzmaurices, Lords of Kerry by Martin Moore

Congratulations to Martin Moore (MA Local History 2019) on the publication of his book on the Fitzmaurices, Lords of Kerry

The survival of the Fitzmaurices Lords of Kerry 1550 to 1603. In Deeds Not Words, author Martin Moore examines the political and military roles of the Fitzmaurices, 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). This work provides an insightful account of the family's interaction with both the Earldom of Desmond and the Tudor State in those eventful years. New light is shone on events such as the pivotal battle of Lixnaw (1568), the Limerick escape of the sons of Lord Fitzmaurice (1581) and on the sieges of Listowel (1600) and Ballingarry (1603). This work includes orginal research and information relevant to anyone with an interest in Tudor Ireland.
