"Calendar of the Carew Manuscripts" 1589-1600 (Harleian Collection) Index : pages 304/305Adare, a town of the Earl of Kildare.(The other book, Calendar of State Papers of Ireland page 325 notes that the abbey of Adare of Mr. George Thornton, where he had 30 men shot, and the Bruff which he had leased from Piers Lacy, was given up to Piers Lacy). I take it that Piers Lacy was in with the Irish rebels. Index: p.299, Edmond FitzGibbon, alias the White Knight. p.104John FitzGibbon, the White Knight. p.300 I think lists the rebels and their forces - In the co. of Desmond, Dermond McOwen, calling himself McCarthi More. p.302A journal of the occurrences of the Camp from 21st May to 22nd June 1599 to the Queen - "Castle of Cahir, being a passag upon the river, a cover for the best part of the co. of Tipperary, and a near neighbour to the White Knight's country" "On the 4th June the army marched that day to Adare, a town of the Earl of Kildare's, in the midst of woods and bogs.Here the pretended Desmond with his Connaught men presented themselve, between 2,000 and 3,000 men.His Lordship (on the Queen's side) received advice that the bastard who now pretends to be McCarty Moore and the Lord McMorris were come with all their forces to James FitzThomas FitzGerald, who lay within 2 miles of our quarters and that the next day they resolved to fight with our army. They had their battle then camped by Crumme, "a principal castle of the Earls of Kildare, standing, as Adare, upon the May." Then the next day they had the choice of geoing through the White Knight's country, called Clangibbon. The White Knight holding no place in all his country; his chief castle of Ballibey being broken down by himself upon the first bruit of the winning of Cahir.As for his neighbours they were all driven into Arlo, a strong fastness, where our army, so pestered with carriages, could not possibly pursue them.This was near Mogheily, a castle of Sir Walter Raleigh.
