Freeman’s Journal October 8 1807

On Thursday last the Kildare militia, quartered at Antrim, began to volunteer for the line; and such was the laudable spirit of the corps, that, although allowed thirty days for the purpose of completing their complement of 95 men, they furnished their quota within three days. The activity and desire of their officers to give every facility to the intentions of Government cannot be too highly applauded, and we are proud to state that no inconsiderable share of the praise for this liberal disposition is due to their loyal and patriotic exertions. Almost the entire number volunteered for unlimited service.

An entry in the Freeman's Journal of 1807 on the formation and training of the Kildare militia.
