Can anyone give me a detailed description of the officer's full dress uniform in 1881?

HF, the Connaught Rangers are not known to me, though I have heard of them. Have you tried looking the Osprey books, as I'm sure there was at least one about uniforms ? The re-enactors of this unit appear to concentrate mostly on the Napoleonic era, but perhaps they could point you in the right direction, including more details of the unit organisation. Idea

The Connaught Rangers ("the Devil's Own") was an Irish Regiment of the British Army, formed by the amalgamation in 1881 of the 88th Regiment of Foot (Connaught Rangers) and the 94th Regiment of Foot. It was disbanded in 1922.

The Richard Simkin illustration LH has provided shows the officers in post 1881 uniform, so that should answer the original question. The collar badges were different between the two battalions the 1st (the old 88th) wore a harp, the 2nd (the old 94th0 wore an elephant.
