Royal Dublin Volunteers

Royal Dublin Volunteers drum on display in the Masons Hall in Dublin. The Volunteers were originally set up to protect the island from imminent invasion, but in time due to the injustices in trade and social laws, the Volunteers saw many if not most take up arms with the United Irishment in 1798.
