Rathmines, 1649 - Original Painting by Graham TurnerRathmines, 1649 - Original Painting by Graham Turner Ref: GT-213a

The wounded Royalist Colonel John Gifford stands amongst the battered remnants of his regiment, hoping to use the fact that he and the Parliamentarian Colonel Michael Jones had previously served together under the Earl of Ormond as a bargaining counter.

Jones is conscious of the fact that whilst he has bloodied Ormond's troops and driven them from the field, he has not destroyed them, and without accurate information about when Cromwell's army is expected to arrive he is aware that he needs every able-bodied man he can muster available to fight.

As if aware of this, Gifford attempts to break the impasse by offering to transfer his allegiance, and those of his men, to Parliament and serve under Jones's command. Whilst the offer is being considered, the tension is compounded by knots of Parliamentarian troopers nervously aiming their weapons at Gifford's men whilst awaiting their general's reaction, unsure if they are facing friend or foe, unsure if the battle is over or hosstilities are merely suspended.

Siege of Clonmel, 1650 - Original Painting by Graham TurnerSiege of Clonmel, 1650 - Original Painting by Graham Turner Ref: GT-213c

Oliver Cromwell tries to browbeat a number of his fleeing soldiers into rallying for another attack on the breach at Clonmel, but having lost over a third of the column either dead or wounded, the infantry were in no mood to make another attack.

Behind Cromwell, colonels Sankey and Shelbourrne offer the services of their two divisions of Cromwell's own Regiment of Horse, but their dismounted attack would also fail with significant losses. In total, an estimated 3,000 men, or almost 40% of Cromwell's army, would become casualties in the failed assaults.
