The Curse of Cromwell's Conquests and the Aftermath
The Cromwellian conquest of Ireland caused unquestionable destruction across the country. From an architectural and landscape viewpoint, the aftermath of Cromwell saw forced dispossession of lands and many magnificent historical Castles, Churches and Mansions lying in ruins. The Curse of Cromwell's Conquests and the Aftermath' is designed to capture the architecture of that bygone era and follows some of the locations besieged, surrendered, abandoned and conquered by Cromwell. While some of the buildings have been eroded by nature and passing of time, the remains provide a gentle reminder of the bloody past in an otherwise unspoiled landscapes. Happily, other buildings have been restored to their former glory, providing a representation of what Ireland lost as a result of the Cromwell invasion.
