result. Einion’sbrother, John Madoc, took revenge by returning to Walter’s manor and destroyingit, and, when Einion died of his injuries, John went to Carrick-on-Suir, found Walter le Poer’sser-geant, and beheaded him in the street. He was accompaniedinter aliaby Madoc Iewan, RysMadoc, Meiler Madoc, Wyllym Iygnon, Thomas son of Dauy of Lystouth and Davy’s brotherIygnon, Philip Iewan, Meiler son of Roger, Gronou le Waleys, Madoc son of Walter Gronou,Henry Madoc, Philip Ithel, Ithel Birlosk, Madoc Robyn, Iewan Robyn, John Boscher le Waleys,David Fyn, Iewan son of Mewrich Cuach, John son of Walter Cuach, Lewelin Fadde, David sonof Gwen le Waleys, Madoc le Waleys and Retharach Madoc.Such a cast of characters one couldexpect to find under investigation anywhere in Walesin: in this case, however, all were appar-ently residents of south Co. Tipperary. Now, one cannot prove that they landed in Ireland on thefirst boat in, and they could conceivably be recent arrivals. But there are reasons for thinkingotherwise. First, there was at least one Irishman among them (the interestingly named William sonof Gilla Sasanach Ó Bruadair);second, among them also was a William Not and a Henry Not,members of a family that had been in Ireland since at least;and third, and surely most sig-nificantly, some of them bear Gaelic nicknames – like DavidFionn( ‘fair-haired’), MeurigCaoch(‘purblind’), and LlywelynFada(‘long’) – all of which suggests that these Welshmen were not amotley crew of newcomers to the Irish scene but rather men whose families had put down roots inCo. Tipperary and who themselves were well and truly at home in the shadow of Slievenamon.***In an age when it took Welshmen, by Gerald of Wales’ calculation, eight days to travel overlandfrom Anglesey in the north-west to Portskewett in the south-east, the attraction of Ireland musthave been great. Less than a day’sjourney by boat – when Henry II left Ireland on Easter Monday, he set sail from Wexford after dawn and put in at St Davids about noon – it had the advan-tage, as Gerald elsewhere claims, that on the voyage across one never at any stage lost sight of landon either shore.

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
