Conor Dillon – Beginnings

Conor Dillon – Beginnings


  During the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries a considerable number of Irishmen left their own country to take up arms for the Catholic Kings of Europe. These soldiers enjoyed a very high reputation for their splendid discipline and the great valour that they displayed on many a foreign battlefield.

Of these troops probably the most notable was the Irish Brigade That fought for over a hundred years under the Lily Banners of the French Monarchy. Many of these Regiments were formed by Irish Catholic Nobility.

The Unit, I have selected for this story is the famed Regiment Dillon, a Regiment with a fine and noble heritage. Please remember that this is purely a work of fiction, I have in some places used real people and events for historical accuracy. If I cause offence in any way, I apologise most sincerely, It was certainly not my intention.
