In Northern Ireland “the past” starts, at the latest, with the Battle of the Boyne in 1690.
The knife she carried under her skirt flashed out and into Boyne's heart.

"Oh, you should have told me that you know there is a gang, Mr. Boyne," she said simply.
"It isn't for you to criticise your mother, Boyne," said Mrs. Kenton, but she was more shaken than she would allow.
If ever a poor devil was flabbergasted, it was the head of the Boyne agency at that moment.
The Dutch guards first entered the river Boyne at a ford opposite to the little village of Oldbridge.
"You're off the track, Boyne," he drew a great, shuddering sigh of relief.
And he told Grania's men he himself would bear Diarmid's body to the Boyne.
