Oliver Cromwell Army in Ireland
After Cromwell’s victory over Charles I he took his New Model army to Dublin to subdue the Irish who had supported the royalist. During Cromwells sojourn in Ireland which lasted for one year, he engaged in a general massacre of Royalist. In October 1651, the last Royalist stronghold- Limerick was captured by Cromwell's supporters. To pay his officers Cromwell passed an Act of Settlement which gave his supporters large tracts of land in Ireland, spurring Protestant settlement in Northern Ireland.
