Aghrim, or Augheim, a village in Galway, 4 miles W. of Ballinasloe, celebrated for the victory of General Ginkell, in command of the army of William III., over the troops of James II. under St. Ruth in 1691. The Irish numbered 25,000, and lost 7,000, besides their commander. The English casualties amounted only to 700 killed and 1,000 wounded. This action so crippled the adherents of James II. in Ireland that complete submission soon ensued.
