About Us

In June 2002 the New Connaught Rangers Association was set up in King House in Boyle, Co Roscommon by a number of individuals with a strong interest and family links to the old regiment. The objectives of the Association were to gather material and information on the regiment and preserve it for the generations to come. This material includes papers, diaries, publications, letters, photographs and other memorabilia associated with Connaught Rangers. The Association also has a social function organising lectures and trips to bring together people with an interest in the Regiment. The nucleus of the Association is made up of persons with a keen interest in preserving, remembering and gathering information on this great regiment before they were consigned to folklore.

The Mission Statement of the Association is:             
To promote, honour, and remember, the men from Connaught, and elsewhere, who gave service in the 88th & 94th Foot and the regiment of the Connaught Rangers in Ireland, or in their areas of engagement worldwide.
