Les Irlandais et La France-300 years of Military co-operation at Les Invalides Paris.
In view of the increased emphasis on Anglo-French military co-operation any of you who who are in Paris on business or pleasure this month might be interested in a visit to the French National Army Museum at Les Invalides where there is an exposition on Irish-French military co-operation over the past 300 years. It very diplomatically covers battles such as Fontenoy as well as the Irish contribution with the British Army in the Great War.
I took some photos there last week and I have made this little compilation below. Hope you enjoy!

I have also included two of my favourite marches
San Patricio- the March of the Armada Argentina in honour of its founder- Admiral William Brown from county Mayo.
Le Chant des Partisans - THE great song of the French Resistance.
About 9 minutes-I hope you enjoy it. (The exposition finishes at the end of the month).
