1583 Cruise

1583. Cruise (perhaps Christopher Cruise, of Meath, who appears in Clare records during this period) brought Donnallbeg O’Brien prisoner to Sir John Perrot, then at Quin. O’Brien was executed most barbarously, being half hanged from a cart, his bones broken with an axe, and suspended still alive from the belfry of Quin Abbey.[16] I find nothing further about this Cruise.
