Hey there, I am currently looking for contact information for any groups that reenact Black and Tans, that reside in around the midlands,
and any Cromwellian reenactment groups that are active. I may even be looking for late 17th to early 18th century reenactors.


If you can pm me any details, I would be obliged. I will give full details then once i get the pms in.

I know this may not be enticing, as you do not know what is going on, but I have been asked to do it this way and to give full info when I get tthe contacts.)

thanks

Andrew

Hello Freebeard,
My group "Khaki and Green" cover the period 1913 - 1921 and do both the British and Irish forces. A large section of those who re-enact with me including the members of the Monasterevan Historical Society / "Lord Edwards Own" re-enactment group are based in the midlands. Would 1798 rebels and British redcoats do for 18th century reenactors if so Eamonn Dunne and his lads will cover you. Try p.m.ing Mock or Lord Edward (Barry Welch) on this site.

If you or anyone is interested in War Of Independence re-enactment I can be contacted by e-mail at padraigoruairc@gmail.com

So drop me a line and let me know how I can help you.

Padraig

P.S. if your still in Ballincollig like your avatiar says then I live in West-Cork myself.
