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.

I am the proud owner of the prototype of this helmet. It is absolutely stunning, a fantastic replica and fits like a glove. It was a joy to work with the team on the production of this helmet and it was delivered on time and at the quoted price. Both the helmet and Celtic Webmerchant come highly recommended.
