The Army

After the Napoleonic Wars, the next major war that was well represented by both men and women of Cork City and County was that of the Crimean, 1854-56. In many cases this fact was documented within the Baptismal registers, where the parents; mainly fathers, but occasionally both, and indeed many godparents, where their military occupations were stated. It is also well documented by various alternative sources that the 57th Regiment; and 89th Royal Irish Fusiliers were both stationed in Cork prior to, and subsequent to this period.
