Legion Ireland - We need You!

Postby Nerva on Tue Apr 22, 2008 8:51 pm

With members throughout Ireland, we are a society dedicated to portraying the Roman Army and it's Celtic allies and foes in the first century A.D.

We portray all aspects of military life including the Legionaries, Auxiliaries, Allies of Rome, Celtic warriors and even the civilians who were part of the Army and its entourage.

We use highly accurate reproductions of the equipment and dress of the first century Imperial Army and drill and display through the use of Latin.

The name of our group is ‘Legion Ireland – Roman Military Society of Ireland (RMSI)’, and portray a detachment or a vexillation or group of soldiers from the twentieth legion based in Ireland.

Included in our group is Cohors IX Batavorum. This is a group of highly skilled Germanic warriors from Batavodorum who support the Legion.

We are also supported by local Celtic irregular infantry or Numerius from Celtic allies who act as scouts and skirmishers in support of the Legion and as foes in combat.

We are always looking for new members and can be contacted at:

And also we have a lot of fun too :D
"The Kaiser knows the Munsters,
by the Shamrock on their caps,
And the famous Bengal Tiger, ever ready for a scrap,
And all his big battalions, Prussian Guards and grenadiers,
Fear to face the flashing bayonets of the Munster Fusiliers."

Go bua

Salvete Omnes!

Just to let people know. We have a growing Celtic 'numerius' section within our group. They will have a separate encampment as part of our display with a new norse style 'A' frame tent and will do Iron working and Bronze pattern moulding as part of the living history display.
