Battle of the Nations - an Irish presence? (Long)

... it gets past my need to train with a purpose. I need to practice armoured combat. This is not so easy, I will need to find someone else who is willing to buy the armour and put the hours in. And this probably needs to be done separately to any other reenactment type training that ...

Re: Historical Revisionism and the Irish War of Independence.

... that Britain was responsible for the Second World War. Anyone who talks nonsense is going to be treated as a fool, in history circles as anywhere else, but he must not infer too much from such treatment. Thanks for the tip on the new edition of The Crime Against Europe . I’ll check it out at the ...

Re: Newbie - Peter O'Connor, near Lismore, Co Waterford.

... Very good news in the near future for re-enactment groups that can get a link (however tenuous) to West Waterford. Vikings are a given but anyone else ? I'll collect and put forward any details for any re-enactment 'scenes' that I can use in any of the many festivals in the area. I wonder if I ...

Newbie - Peter O'Connor, near Lismore, Co Waterford.

... (See Glenribbeen's FaceBook page for photos of the evening). I'm interested in the food, and culture too. Especially the food as I eat nothing else. I already make stuff like Roman Army bread and some porridge-based bread - with honey and used to make old recipe beers, mead and melomeal - alas ...

Re: Historical Revisionism and the Irish War of Independence.

Unfortunately for the attempt to discredit people like Meda Ryan, Dr Brian Murphy, Niall Meehan, Desmond Fennell and anyone else who may have been published or promoted by Athol Books by linking them with the Aubane Historical Society, they are not members. I would recommend looking ...

Re: Norwegian Viking ship seeking crew and volunteers

... from ports, other than that I'm not sure if it's a change into modern gear as soon as you're out of sight situation or if they have something else in mind. Have to say, having been there and back again on the Sea Stallion, I was mighty glad for waterproofs and thermals ;)

Re: The IRA in Kerry 1916-1921 by Sinead Joy

... makes it quite clear that she is indeed questioning the traditional version of history. The whole business of revisionism is dealt with elsewhere but to make my own position clear I believe that unless history is revised in every generation it stultifies into mythology. However, Ms Joy ...

Re: Tool and weapon handling by the public at events

... I had at an event lately: "Go on mister give us a go of your sword" "no, because you'll swing it and hurt yourself or someone else" "and then I'd sue you" It is about health and safety. The bare minimum. Trying on helms and maybe bits of armour is a great experience ...

Re: Tool and weapon handling by the public at events

... re-enacting in our back yards(thats if we a are left with a back yard to play in) because we could never afford the insurance to re-enact anywhere else. We as a community are very lax about safety because nothing in the way of a serious incident has happened here yet. So, do we wait until all of ...
