Abstract: The journey which Ó Néill, Ó Domhnaill and their followers embarked upon from the Low Countries to Lombardy in early 1608 corresponded to the route known as the Spanish Road. This article examines the party’s Lenten expedition in the context of this itinerary, focusing upon key points along the way in the light of contemporary Irish experience. An emphasis on politics and diplomacy is characteristic of historical writing about Ó Cianáin’s chronicle. This affords a new line of inquiry. In order to evaluate and understand the journey it must be examined in its immediate context. Concentrating on events witnessed in early 1608 reveals valuable findings which have hitherto passed unobserved.
