    4. Probably not. I believe it's awful hard to immigrate there. Last I heard you had to prove that you could maintain a $50,000 per year salary, even after retirement and what's in your savings doesn't count towards that. It won't stop me from dreaming about it though LOL.

  4. I would definitely watch this one, but I'm a little confused on how it's related to WW2? I'm assuming his descendants had a big impact? Now that I'm thinking about it, I've never heard much about Ireland in WW2, if at all.

    1. What WW2? Geez Louise, he started the Nine Year War in the 16th century, not WW2! LOL

    2. But... it says this "His decision would mark the greatest threat to England sovereignty until WWII.".

    3. Yes, meaning it was such a big threat to England that from his medieval times all the way to the WWII there wasn't a bigger one. In other words he tried to break up the country.
