Comment:
I hope no one will ever take him for an ould Irish Saint
Description:
St. Ruth had the command of the Irish forces in at the Battle of Aughrim in which engagement he lost his life. 7,000 of the Irish were slain whereas the English army (under the command of General Ginkle) lost only 600 men. The victory was the more remarkable as the Irish were 25,000 strong whereas the English were only 18,000 men. The Irish are also supposed to have lost 9 pieces of cannon, all their ammunition, tents and baggage. Most of their small arms which they threw away to escape with 11 standards and 32 pair of colors.
Situation:
Is situated in the Northern side of Kilcommadan townland. There is a tree represented on the South side of Attydermot townland and about 7 ½ chains N.W of Lisbeg at which it is said by some that St. Ruth was killed but I believe the real place is described in this page.
