"The Battle of the Diamond" was 21st September 1795

        On the Diamond Hill they'd rallied.
        What though they were many, and we but few,
        Yet each to the conflict hasted;
        And the shot was sharp, and the aim was true,

Refers to an account of a battle beween the Roman Catholic "Defenders" and the Protestant "Peep o' Day Boys".
The Defenders failed to expel Protestants from County Armagh.

    Reminds me that I should convert all my web link references to the books wherever possible. Web pages just ain't all that permanent. Are they?
