Former Irish regiments of the British Army in the Irish Defence Forces.


It is a pity that the Irish Defence Forces does not honour Ireland’s pre 1921 traditions.

The old names of disbanded regiments could be revived. The prefix royal could be dropped. These would be ones that recruited from the Twenty-Six counties

Dublin Fusiliers

Connaught Rangers

Munster Fusiliers.

Leinster Regiment

South Irish Horse

Irish Hussars


About Calers

Born Belfast 1971. I read history at Edinburgh. I did a Master's at UCL. I have semi-libertarian right wing opinions. I am married with a daughter and a son. I am allergic to cats. I am the falling hope of the not so stern and somewhat bending Tories. I am a legal beagle rather than and eagle. Big up the Commonwealth of Nations.
