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:www.romanarmy.ie
