The Royal Dublin Fusiliers was an Irish infantry Regiment of the British Army created in 1881, one of eight Irish regiments raised and garrisoned in Ireland, with its home depot in Naas. Created in 1881 by the amalgamation of two former East India Company regiments. The regiment raised six battalions for the First World War (1914-18). During the conflict, it won three Victoria Crosses and fought in Gallipoli and Palestine as well as on the Western Front.
Back in Dublin, it also became entangled in the Easter Rising of 1916. Three of its battalions were sent to engage Irish nationalists. The post-war period saw 1st Battalion become part of the British Army of occupation in Germany, while 2nd Battalion was stationed in Turkey, India and then England. It was disbanded in 1922 on the establishment of the Irish Free State.
