  • FCA Unit Formations in 1947

    In 1947 all reserve forces were dis-established and in their place were created the First Line Reserve and An Fórsa Cosanta Áitiúil (FCÁ) which was classed as Second Line.
    Does anyone know the names of the Different units that were formed in 1947 ?

    Any links to information on the web - Books were this information could be looked up?
    I went into an Italian restaurant and ordered dessert and they gave me tiramisu and a blindfolded horse and I said No, I said mask a pony (mascarpone)

      It was more of a reorg of the LDF. There were Rifle Battalions (eg North Wicklow Battalion). If memory serves correctly there was 99 rifle battalions before this reorg.

      A History of the Irish Army is your best bet.
