Battle of Aughrim Interpretative Centre

Long Business Description

The Centre commemorates the key Williamite victory of July 1691, which saw 45,000 soldiers from across Europe join in battle at this site. St Ruth, the Jacobite commander, made his stand here after retreating from Athlone, but was outflanked and he died early in the battle. 7,000 Jacobite troops were killed, many as they fled, and the back of Jacobite resistance in Ireland was broken.

Exhibits explain the background to the war in England ’s Glorious Revolution (1688), and its aftermath, with the departure of the Wild Geese from Ireland .
