Strongbow, or Richard de Clare, was the Earl of Pembroke in England. He was asked by a displaced king of Leinster to invade Ireland in 1170 to take back Leinster (Leinster is the ancient name for the southesastern part of Ireland). He was successful, leading to the English rule of Ireland for 750 years. Legend says he is buried here in Christchurch, but historians are doubtful. It is possible he was buried here then moved to Ferns Cathedral in County Wicklow, south of Dublin.
