Overview
-

John de Courcy was a Knight of noble birth but bleak prospects. He fought his way to the notice of Henry II who laughingly granted him Ulster "provided he could conquer it by force". John won his chance at the Battle of Downpatrick in 1177 and ruled his Norman lordship from Carrickfergus Castle until his demise at the hands of King John.
