This episode covers a frenetic period of activity. The show starts in 1181 when Hugh de Lacy is suspected of treason by Kking Henry II. The Normans in Ireland wait with bated breath to see what future holds for their most powerful Lord. From there we travel to Munster in 1182 where a revolt breaks out leading to the death of one of the most well known of the invaders. Finally in the second half of the show we return to Ulster where a somewhat mysterious figure, the knight John de Courcy, was leading the Norman charge north against one of Ireland’s most powerful families – the O’Neills.
