    The French weren’t coming to invade us, they were on their way to help us drive out the invader. Anyone nearby got a history book you could borrow and maybe colour in too after you’ve read it?

      Yes, but the Irish didn’t build them, the British did.
      To repel an invasion by a hostile third party.

      From the perspective of the people who built them, they were built “to repel a threatened French invasion”, exactly like he said.

      Do you want me to pick you up some markers on the way home from the shop while I’m at it?

          No, i would not like to claim credit for this fine colorisation; i just found that Bill’s rather rude response based on his own very reductive reading of history stuck in my craw.
