A talk on 'The Rapparees' by Dr Eamonn O'Ciarda

Rapparees (from the Irish ropairí, plural of ropaire, meaning half-pike or pike-wielding person) were Irish guerrilla fighters who operated on the Jacobite side during the 1690s Williamite war in Ireland. Subsequently the name was also given to bandits and highwaymen in Ireland - many former guerrillas having turned to crime after the war was over. They share many similarities with the hajduks of Eastern Europe.
