We will also visit the site of the Battle of the Boyne fought in 1690 just after the siege of Derry. This battle was between William Prince of Orange and his Father In-Law King James. It was essentially a European war and a fight for the English crown. Its ramifications are still fought over today in the North of Ireland. There is a new Boyne interpretive Centre recently opened last year which assists us in explaining this complex time in Irish history.
