History

Confederate Irelandball was born as a 2-icon 2ball, adopted by Gaulball, Papal States-icon Papal Statesball/Kingdom of England-icon Englandball, and Kingdom of Ireland-icon Kingdom of Irelandball. He was independent for only ten years of wars during the Eleven Years War, it rose up in the "Irish Rebelion Of 1641" in the clays of Connughtball, Munsterball (Except the clay of Corkball), The flat midlands of central Leinsterball, and County Wexfordball,

During the Ulsterball massacres 4,000 English and a small group of Irish Protestants were killed or sent away from their homes, The Irish Kingdomball ( Client state of England), and Scotlandball were pulled in to this rebelion on the side of the english, though did not partake in much of the fight ued to their disloyaly, The English claimed that over 200,000 Protestants had lost their lives In fact, recent research has suggested that the number is far more modest, in the region of 4,000 or so killed, though many thousands were expelled from their homes It is estimated that up to 12,00 Civilian Protestants may have lost their lives in total, the majority dying of cold or disease after being expelled from their homes in the depths of winter cause Irish geography allows it to be only somewhat warm in summer. This is not to say that the Catholics didnt take any loses though, the fighting in Ireland was characterised by small bands managed  by local powerfull land owners or among local people, attacking civilians of opposing ethnic and religious groups, though  on 4 November Phelim O'Neill produced a forged royal proclamation at Newryball and asserted that he was acting in King Charles's name. On the same day the English parliament voted money and supplies for an army of up to 8,000 men to crush the rebellion. 

Charles I, together with local lords and landowners, raised a large army to subdue them. In mid 1642, these forces totalled: 40,000-foot and 3600 horse with 300 manning the artillery. Included in this total are 10,000-foot raised by the Scottish parliament and sent to Ulster to defend their compatriots there. In February 1642 the royalist army led by based in Dublin advanced to Naas and in March they raised the siege of Drogheda. In April they supplied garrisons in the midlands and won the Battle Of Kilrush on their return to Dublin. A quick defeat of the rebels in Ireland was prevented by the outbreak of the English Civil War in October 1642, after all the rebelions army either deserted or was killed  the major unrest of the 1916 rebbelion could be traced back to here
