Donegal [Ireland] on 2 February 1621/22.3 In 1603 Paul Gore was chosen to escort two defeated Irish chieftains to their place of surrender at Athlone. Having successfully delivered the chieftains there, he was granted lands in the northwest of Ireland by the new King James I. Five years later he was asked to occupy Tory Island, then controlled by Irish forces. His plan was a sinister one. He orchestrated a quarrel amongst the two main Irish forces on the island. When the battle was over Gore slaughtered the victors. Gore was created a baronet in 1622. He resided in Ireland and built the castle of Ardtermon on the shores of Drumcliff Bay in Sligo, just two miles from where Lissadell House (built in the 1830’s) now stands.
