Cromwell in Ireland
Well did anyone else watch it and what did they think?
Thought the guy who played Cromwell was quite good but the accent wasn't really authentic but other than that I think he caught the man's character well enough.
Couldn't help noticing though they kept on referring to Irish Rising of 1641 as the 'Rebellion'!
The combat scenes were quite good too esp the Flags and the way they dominated the battlefield.
While we didn't learn much that was new it might be of more interest to those who have never interested themselves in it before.
Also they portray Owen Ruadh O’Neill as dying of natural causes but forgot to mention the strong possibility that enemy agents poisoned him.
