Duncannon Fort on Aproach

It’s been some time, since I last upload something on my blog, but fear not, I still love photography and do it with passion and great attention to details, or at least I want to believe so 🙂

Last week I had a chance to be a part of Two days military show that took place in Duncannon Fort, close to Wexford. The event has now become one of the biggest and long running events of its kind in Ireland.

I had to split my photo-post into two separate pages, as the amount of images I have is massive. To all who are waiting for Second World War and Modern military displays and battles please bear with me.  It will be out soon.

But let’s go back in time and meet Vikings, Roman and WWI infantry, that put a show that will be kept in our memories.

Vikings Show - Duncannon Fort Moat

The Fingal living history and Waterford LHG – (Waterford) Vikings groups where displaying Viking and pre Christian era tents. Weapons and living history, as well as doing several battles in the moat most of it are captured and presented to all of you today. The Fingal is an outstanding group who are renowned all over Ireland for its historical accuracy in what they portray. The Photos of the Battle and Slice of Viking Life is something to remember.

We Come to an End with Vikings. Our next step in time takes us into Rome, where Roman Legions where once Feared and Respected Warriors.

Romans Ireland group, who specializing in life under the Roman rule gave a taste of life in Roman times. Near their tents you could find Armored Roman Warriors, weapons, religion and life in the Roman legion. A very informative and historically correct group who did several re-enactments throughout the weekend with Battle Formations and tactics.

Next on the list is: Irlanda brigade Re-enactors of the Peninsular war of 1808-14 dressed in the uniform of the ‘Regimento de Infanteria de Irlanda’ of the Spanish army at that time. The Irlanda were raised from Jacobites who traveled from Ireland to Spain. This was one fascinating show to be remembered as soldier did their best to represent the history of Irlanda brigade: marching, showing firing formations and firing on sergeant command.

  6. If anyone’s interested, this blog has a few methods they mention for purling in the second half of their post!
