The Bruce in Ireland covers the historical events which followed Bannockburn, when Robert the Bruce’s younger brother went off to Ireland to open up a second front against the English. Fighting as he was, in support of those already at war with them, it technically did not break the year-long truce agreed between Scotland and England.
