Featured Collection

Military History Collection, Enniskillen

Enniskillen is home to two distinguished regiments, the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons and The Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. In addition to the books that have been written on these regiments, the collection also contains books on the history of other Irish regiments such as the Connaught Rangers, the Irish Battalion, Irish Brigades, North Irish Horse, and Yeomanry. Several of the titles in the collection have been written by two local military historians - the late William Copeland Trimble and the late Sir Cyril Falls. The books cover the period from the mid 1800s to the present day.
