-The regiment was assembled from all counties of Leinster for service in England in 1646 but instead remained in Ireland. They appear to have been wiped out at Dungan'​s Hill, with every company commander captured or killed. ​+The regiment was assembled from all counties of Leinster for service in England in 1646 but instead remained in Ireland. They appear to have been very heavily defeated ​at Dungan'​s Hill, with every company commander captured or killed. By 1649 the regiment had been reconstituted and fought in Ormonde'​s Royalist army at Rathmines, though they were in reserve and not heavily engaged. Subsequently they were sent to garrison Drogheda and were massacred there after Cromwell'​s storm of the city
