One Gallòglach and Two Kerns - Albrecht DürerOne Gallòglach and Two Kerns – Albrecht Dürer by FirstNightVintage

This is a detail of a 1521 drawing by Albrecht Dürer of Irish warriors. The gallòglach or gallowglass on the left is carrying a sword — a claidheamh mhòr — while the barefoot kerns to his right carry pole-axes and a cow horn trumpet.

I was actually searching for St Patrick’s Day inspiration when I came across the image though it’s probably not suitable unless you want to stir up a war-like frenzy on 17th March!

Take care and keep laughing!
