The Battle of Connor was fought on 10 September 1315, in the townland of Tannybrake just over a mile north of what is now the modern village of Connor, County Antrim.[1] It was part of the Bruce campaign in Ireland. Edward Bruce and his Irish allies defeated the 2nd Earl of Ulster's forces following the defection of the Red Earl's allies; who resolved to renounce their servitude to the Anglo-Normans. The capture of Connor permitted Bruce to re-supply his army for the coming winter from the stores the Earl of Ulster had assembled at Connor.[2] Despite this, and another Scottish/Irish victory at the Battle of Skerries, the campaign was to be defeated at the Battle of Faughart.
