In any event, unless I missed something significant in this thread, the answer for why Scots went to Ireland has thusfar been that they went there to fight as mercenaries?

That doesn't seem quite complete, given the age of the two civilizations and their proximity to one another across that tiny bit of water.

One can read and read, and become more confused with each viewpoint - so, I imagined it a better choice to simply ask those who have lived there in person for generations.

Try researching the facts rather that making up your assumptions .

Well sir, since you prefer rudeness to sharing of knowledge, of which you must have a great amount, I will respectfully withdraw from this conversation.

I don't think that it was just Bluehawk that assumed that your were refering to the comment made
by Hiorta...with the posts following each other it could have been either reply.

Bluehawk said he could read and read and get confused, also asks for help in understanding events etc
.....you come back with a statement that really doesn't help at all !!!!!

In fact you were as Bluehawk said rude and that surprises me as I never thought of you being unhelpful!!

Not everyone knows everything that is why the post was made in the first place...for INFORMATION and HELP

I hade no mention of 'Huguenots' in my original post .
" Cromwell " was all it consisted of .


Bluehawk failed to follow up on that with research , and came back with this
" To get away from him, or closer to him? "
Obviously no follow up was done there.

Adding two more keywords to the original ,
I asked Bluehawke " What answer to that did you get when you researched Cromwell / Ireland / Border Reivers ? "

And this came back .
"Hugenots, however, I confess never having understood very well at all. "

Hugenots ? .
What manner of research is it that gets Hugenots and only Hugenots from research using Cromwell , Ireland , Border , Reivers , and Scots , and Ireland as the keys .

And as we can see , the sum total of the research pointers and information supplied by all who responsed to Bluehawkes query , added up , in Bluwhawkes mind to
" In any event, unless I missed something significant in this thread, the answer for why Scots went to Ireland has thusfar been that they went there to fight as mercenaries? "




Yes Bluehawke missed many significant things that were given to follow up on by helpful members .

Assumption rather that re-search would appear to be order of the day in Bluehawke's world .
That and the rudeness .

I was not the one who closed this thread even though I posted last in it BUT I am the one
re-opening it !!!!

I did wonder why maxkirk started a thread called: -

Right of Reply to "Why, exactly Scots > Ireland?"

I would have done also !!

Anyone who knows me will know that I do say when I am going to close a thread so the
email I received telling me that I was being a 'B****' in closing the thread was uncalled for.
Also to have blocked my address for me to reply just goes to show how some people's mind work.

I won't lose any sleep over the email...its deleted.
