The Political History of England, Vol II, George Burton Adams Longmans Green and Co, 1905, Ch XIV, p297:
"...In 1166 Dermot, the dispossessed king of Leinster, who had found King Henry too busily occupied with affairs in France to aid him, had secured with the royal permission the help he needed in Wales, and thus had connected with the future history of Ireland the names of `Strongbow' and `Fitzgerald.' The native Irish, though the bravest of warriors, were without armour, and their weapons, of an earlier stage of military history, were no match for the Norman; especially had they no defence against the Norman archers. The conquest of Leinster, from Waterford to Dublin, and including those twocities, occupied some years, but was accomplished by a few men. `Strongbow' himself, Richard de Clare, Earl of Pembroke, did not cross over till the end of August , 1170, when the work was almost completed. He married the daughter of Dermot and was recognized as his heir, but the death of his father-in-law in the next spring was followed by a general insurrection against the new rulers, and this was hardly under control when the earl was summoned to England to meet the king."
