Much of the information contained in Charles Dalton's 'Irish Army Lists 1661-1685' was taken from the Calendars and Reports of the Marquis of Ormond MSS, but it also draws a plethora of information from the Irish State Papers, as well as the King's Letter and Entry Books. It is, therefore, a more comprehensive account than that published in the 1890s by the Historical Manuscripts Commission.
This publication provides the names of all the senior ranks of officers serving in the Restoration Army of Charles II and in many cases relevant annotations have been provided by the editor. These annotations often provide useful genealogical information and can provide an essential historical perspective to the officers' careers in Ireland.
'Irish Army Lists' provides a full index to the names of officers contained in the lists, but it is also fully and easily searchable. It provides a fascinating and detailed account of the new modelled Irish standing army during the reign of Charles II and is a welcome and much needed addition to post-Cromwellian Irish history publications.
