We are delighted to announce that we have been invited to meet with meet with Dr. Rafe Blaufarb, Co-chair of the International Napoleonic Society, to discuss working on a joint project about Myles Byrne who was a high ranking officer in Napoleon’s Irish Guard.
President of Finte O’Broin, Derek Byrne, has arranged to meet Dr. Blaufarb in London in September to examine how Finte O’Broin and The International Napoleonic Society can work together. This is a very exciting development for us which we are confident will result in a detailed account of the life of Myles Byrne.
In the mean time, our researcher, Edward Byrne Jnr. is working on collating as much information as possible on Myles Byrne and his family in Ireland before the 1798 Rebellion.
Please keep an eye of our news page for further developments.
