The Inniskillings Museum

Enniskillen is the only town in Great Britain and Ireland to confer its name on two regiments. 

They are Cavalry and Infantry.

They are Inniskillings.

And Enniskillen Castle is where their story began more than 330 years ago.

Looking for a relative who served in the regiment?

The Inniskillings Museum, in conjunction with History Hub Ulster, carries out research on individuals who served in the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers prior to 1920.
