    Moreover, as well as his vassals, he hired mercenaries from all around Europe and made his invasion common knowledge, before embarking on a policy of conquest.[3] This is in stark contradiction to the Norman invasion of Ireland. The Normans were not there on a mission of conquest, but to initially help re-establish Diarmait Mac Murchada as King of Leinster.[4] Indeed, the Normans believed that they were ?restoring the fortunes of this honourable man [Diarmait Mac Murchada]?,[5] as articulated by Gerald of Wales and although he may have idealised the motives of his brethren, it reasonable that this opinion was shared by Norman forces, due to the fact their aims or monarchic restoration were clear.
