BRAND NEW VIDEO: THREE CENTURIES OF MILITARY HISTORY – THE WILD GEESE IN FRANCE

For hundreds of years, Irish soldiers have sought their destiny abroad. Wherever they travelled, whichever side of the battlefield they have stood, the tales of their exploits have never been forgotten.

Our new video explores the arrival of The Wild Geese in France and the strong Irish-Franco relationship they started. A relationship that still thrives today.

The Wild Geese were remembered in an exhibition at the Musee de l’Armee in Paris, which proves that their story still resonates with people throughout the world today.
