1798 Re enactment

Postby Bandraoi on Wed Nov 05, 2008 10:05 am

Hey,

For re enactment:
Does anybody focus on this period in Ireland - any group or event that is specific to this...

For research:
I'm primarily interested in the whole 'Republic of Connacht' thing with General Humbert, and any battles that may have taken place within Roscommon county.

Also the fighting women, I've read about the main ones, but any that were from Roscommon, does anybody know?

Information, opinion, references, source material etc, much appreciated.

Cheers

Hi there,

You can get on to the Monasterevin lads, they do mostly redcoats from that period, but have a good general knowledge.

I can help you with some questions on the French army if you have any questions there?

cheers

a good source of information would be
thomas pakenhams book 1798 The year of liberty
isbn 0-349-11252-5
it gives a good impartial view of events at the time

Hi,

The Monasterevin lads and the 9eme will be doing 1798 almost everywhere we are heading. You could come to Thurles tomorrow. We will be there with two 1798 Chasseurs. the Monasterevin lads will be there in World War 1 uniform (another one of their Projects).

cheers

I was trying to get out of a prior commitment to go along to Thurles but unfortunately I'm stuck :(
Thanks!

Hi,

I do the Connaught Rangers from that period.
Their HQ was in Boyle House in Roscommon, as you might know.

We do a lot of Napoleonic events over the Summer months here in Ireland & abroad.
For instance, Duncannon is a big event for us as well as Waterloo.
A lot of the guys who do the Connaughts are based up in Sligo/Leitrim anyway,
which might be convenient for you.

Let us know if you're interested.


All the best,

Hi Bandraoi,

As has been stated multiple times above we Lord Edward's Own (aka the Monasterevin lads) do 1798 and 1803. We started about 5 years ago doing Pikemen and got distracted by Napoleonics but we usually field both at any event we attend since its part of the overall story of Europe 1789 to 1815. Next year we'll hopefully have a 70e Demi-brigade impression as well.

Fellowship of Freedom by Kevin Whelan ISBN: 1-85918-210-0 makes a good source book if you can pick it up.
