The Irish Brigades Abroad: book launch

Irish Brigades Abroad is a new title by Stephen McGarry.

Its 320 pages examine the complete history of the Irish regiments in France, Spain, Austria and beyond. Covering the period from King James II's reign of the three kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland in 1685, until the disbandment of the Irish Brigades in France and Spain, what emerges is a picture of the old-fashioned virtues of honour, chivalry, integrity and loyalty, of adventure and sacrifice in the name of a greater cause.

The paperback is published by The History Press Ireland and can be purchased from the publisher's website for €18.00

The title will be officially launched on Saturday 14 September in the National Museum, Collins Barracks, at 3.30pm, and everyone is welcome to attend.
