 +=====Notes=====
 +Lt Col Kavanagh'​s detachment was likely taken from one of the regiments of Ormonde'​s army, possibly [[confederate:​foot-regiments:​sir-james-dillon|Sir James Dillon’s Regiment of Foot]] or the [[confederate:​foot-regiments:​earl-of-westmeath|Earl of Westmeath’s Regiment of Foot]], which Cromwell thought were each around 200 strong at Drogheda, but were not mentioned in the Royalist muster of late August. Needs clarification. ​
