Rory Óg O’More and men attack and burn Naas 1577

#OnThisDay 1577 140 men led by Rory Óg O’More and Cormac MacCormack O’Connor ran through Naas like “haggs and furies of hell, with flakes of fire fastened on poles“, and burned over 700 thatched houses. A price of £1000 was put on their heads by the Crown. #Ireland #History
