Tyrone was not successful in his goal of preservation of Gaelic traditions and institutions. Irelandwas a medieval and barbaric state and in competin gwith the English the Irish were dealin gwith a well-governed, well-organized, unifie dstate. With the defeat of Tyron, "Old Ireland" was ended. No longer would any Gaelic traditions persist in the social or political systems of Ireland. The authority of the chiefs was gone. The government at Dublin and Englissh common law would prevail. The Tudor conques was complete.
