Walter Butler

Thanks to Norbert again I have found out a little more about this Irishman who was present at the murder of Wallenstein. He was born in Roscrea and initially was in initially the Irish Legion - which is a unit I'd like to know more about and eventually was Colonel of a regiment of Dragoons. Wiki here.
There's some interesting stuff about Irish soldiers in the Spanish army of the period and elsewhere here.
