The Thomas Fitzgerald’s re-enactment group was started in 1999, though many in the group have participated in the hobby for many more years.
We portray the Geraldines Anglo Irish Lords ( Thomas FitzGerald 7th Earl of Kildare,Thomas FitzGerald 7th Earl of Desmond and Sir Thomas FitzGerald of Laccagh, Lord High Chancellor of Ireland )households ,involved in the conflict, as a battlefield command group, their Ladies and followers.
The group was set up as a combat society and we field a mix of English Man at Arms, billmen, archers and Gaelic Gallowglass. We also have an expanding living history camp, which can offer among other things a field kitchen and armoury workshop.
Its current membership is based mainly in the West Country, but has representation
from Worcestershire, Cornwall, Oxfordshire, and London.
