“Faugh A Ballagh (Irish) (Clear the Way)

This regiment was formed in July 1968 by merging The Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, The Royal Irish Fusiliers (Princess Victoria’s) and The Royal Ulster Rifles.

Initially composed of three battalions, the regiment was reduced to two later that year, when the 3rd Battalion (Royal Irish Fusiliers) was disbanded. It became the county regiment for the six counties of Northern Ireland.

As its predecessor regiments had either been ‘Rifles’ or ‘Fusiliers’, the new designation ‘Rangers’ was adopted to avoid favouring one of these former titles.
