    Some say he died 15 Aug 1398. If so presumably of wounds sustained at the battle on 20 July.
    In March 1394 Richard II entertained some of the Irish chiefs with great splendour at Dublin, and conferred the order of knighthood on O'Neill, O'Connor, MacMurrough, and O'Brien, apparently as representing the four provinces or kingdoms of Ireland.
    Richard left behind him as Viceroy his cousin Roger Mortimer, Earl of March and Ulster, Lord of Wigmore, Trim, Clare, and Connaught, who was defeated and slain by the O?Briens, on 20th July 1398, at Kenlis, in the present Queen's County.
    'The traytorous death of Mortimer, whom he loved entirely, being wonderfull eager in hastening the revenge thereof upon the Irish,' (Campion). induced King Richard, in an evil hour for his own fortunes, again to visit Ireland, and he landed at Waterford on Sunday, 1st June 1399, almost simultaneously with the landing of Henry of Lancaster at Ravenspur, the news of which reached him in Dublin.
