Transcribed from public records by Colin Ferguson and posted here with his kind permission.

The registers of the Hotel Royal des Invalides in Paris show 111,394 soldiers admitted between 1692-1769. Of these, some 2,000 were Irish and of these 298 were from Cork. This comes from an article by EOGHAN O hANNRACHAIN, "Irish veterans at the Hotel Royal des Invalides (1692-1769)", The Irish Sword, vol XXI (no 83) p5.

I can lookup any of the following soldiers from Cork found in the article:
