This helmet is a replica of an original found in Lough Henney, northern Ireland. It dates from the 14th-15th century and is currently on display in the Ulster museum, Belfast. It is thought that such a helmet was worn by an Irish gall óglach (galloglass, gallowglass).
The helmet is made from 1,5 mm thick carbon steel. It has a brass triangular border around the eyes and the nasal has a brass 'clothing hook', the function of which is unknown. The helmet is finished using flame blackening. It has a textile liner, which is attached to the helmet with brass rivets. It is delivered including chin strap. Weight circa 2,5 kg.
