Join military historian Tóla Collier as he describes the infantry soldiers of the Williamite war in Ireland and in particular the Grenadiers.

A new type of soldier which emerged in the 17th century, the role of the Grenadier was to break up enemy formations on the battlefield and to assault fortified positions such as Athlone castle, as a result they were considered elite soldiers.

Tóla’s demonstration will premiere on Athlone Castle’s social channels on Thursday 19th August at 1pm

This event is supported by the Heritage Council under the Irish Walled Towns Network 2021 Interpretation Fund.
