Lough Henney helm

Made after the original (dates back to c. 1420) that is on display in the Ulster museum. The helmet was excavated from a battlefield at Lough Henney, and is thought to have been worn by an Irish gallowglass. The gallowglass  were a class of elite mercenary warriors who were principally members of the Norse-Gaelic clans of Scotland between the mid 13th century and late 16th century.
