Skirmishing unarmoured Irish warriors armed with javelins and handweapon, willing to fight for whomever can pay them.
Kerns are Irish light Infantry made up of freemen armed with a javelin and small hand-weapon. Relying on agility rather than armour these light skirmishers hurl their javelin at their foes, whilst keeping out of combat with more heavily armoured opponents. Many Kerns seek an escape from poverty by fighting as mercenaries.
