For Kelly’s Irish Brigade

Or Regiment. I’m still working out the history. Certainly they were immortalised in song as a ‘Brigade’. In fact, they were immortalised in the same song that gives this blog its name.

With pale affright and panicked flight
shall dastard Yankees, base and hollow,
hear a Celtic race from their battle place
charge to the shout of ‘Faugh-a-ballagh!’
