|• The Royal Irish Regiment was created in 1992 with the merger of The Royal Irish Rangers and The Ulster Defence Regiment.
• The band was formed a year later and when uniquely combining with Bugles, Pipes & Drums they boasted the largest regimental musical ensemble in the British Army before sadly disbanding in October 2007.
• Faugh-A-Ballagh is an old Gaelic battle cry meaning “Clear The Way!” and is the regimental motto of The Royal Irish Regiment.
• The title track, a quick march, is used to lead the Regimental Colours on and off parade.
• This stirring collection of music features the full ensemble and ranges from a solo piper on At The Dawning Of The Day to a moving and emotional rendition of Danny Boy.
