The Bruce Invasion of Ireland

I recently came across a very decent documentary done by RTÉ showing the Bruce Invasion of Ireland. In some ways it probably overstates the Irish support for the invasion and downplays the significance of the civil war in the O'Connor clan in Connacht, which was very important from my reading of the sources.

Regardless, it is a well-executed and impressive documentary about the times in Scotland and Ireland in the years preceding the first outbreak of the Black Death.

Enjoy!
