‘Old English’ Thomas Butler, Earl of Ormond, a known as “Black Tom” is waiting for his Queen, Elizabeth. She is rumoured to be the mother of one of Tom’s 12 illegitimate children. And she has promised to visit Ireland. Black Tom builds a manor house for Elizabeth at Carraigh on the River Suir, and there he waits for her. A very real picture of love and hate in Tudor Ireland.
