The Irish who took part in the famous battle of Rorkes Drift.
"As with most actions, there is some confusion as to how many were involved; officially, it was 16, and facts prove that 13 were born here. They were Sgt Henry Gallagher (Thurles) and pivates Henry Turner (Ballsbridge), Patrick Hayes (Newmarket, Co Clare), James Bush (Dublin), Timothy Connors (Killeaty, Co Cork), James Dick (Antrim), James Hagan (Nenagh), Thomas Lynch (Limerick), John Lyons (O’Brien’s Bridge, Co Clare), Michael Moynihan (Castlehaven, Co Cork), Augustus Morris (Dublin), Thomas Robinson (Dublin) and Michael Tobin (Windgap, Kilkenny). Four others enlisted in Ireland are drummer Patrick Galgey, who enlisted in Cork, as did John Manly, while Michael Kiely and Garrett Hayden enlisted in Dublin. Eight others enlisted elsewhere are believed to be Irish or have Irish connections. These were William Desmond, William Horrigan, Louis Byrne, Pte McMahon, John Fagan, John Murphy, Anthony Connors and Thomas Buckley. This would mean that as many as 25 Irish were involved. Fagan, Horrigan, Hayden and Byrne would be among the 15 casualties on the British side"
