Welcome to the Rebel Legion Ireland Base

Welcome to the Rebel Legion Ireland Base – our Base serves Republic of Ireland territory.

The Rebel Legion is an all-volunteer, non-profit international Star Wars costuming club whos aims are to raise money for charities, to support community events and promote the franchise through appearances their members make in costumes that represent all eras of the Star Wars Saga.

It has been formed in 2000 to bring together Star Wars costuming enthusiasts and fans, giving them a collective identity both online and offline to meet and have fun with membership now surpasses 3,000 members globally.

Each country or region will have their own ‘Base’. Base members work in their areas or countries to create that local identity and to encourage teamwork within those communities.
Rebel Legion’s member’s research, build, craft and make their own costumes, in their own time and expense to appear at events.

Members are encouraged to strive for the highest level of screen accuracy and realism in order to bring the characters of the Star Wars universe to life.
As such it would be easy to mistake the Rebel Legion as a cosplay group but really we are a ‘costuming’ club; where accuracy and dedication to making the most authentic costumes is as important to our members as raising money for the charities we support.

As well as attending larger national and international events, our key objectives is also to give something back to the communities we live in through charity fundraising at the events we attend – large or small.

    One of our jawas was trying to explain to the nice imperial officer that he was simply enquiring about the cost of a droid & wasn't going to steal it.

    Jawas have a really bad name, for some unknown reason.

    She will always be royalty....
    Today marks the third anniversary of our beloved General and Princess, Carrie Fisher, becoming one with the Force.

    Whilst we celebrate the culmination of the S
    kywalker Saga, we must not ‘let the past die’, and forget those who worked to make the story so beloved for generations.

    Akin to her onscreen counterpart’s royal lineage, Carrie was of Hollywood royalty - but she always had time for her fans, whom she always treated as family.

    In her life, she was a talented writer, actor, and vocal mental health advocate; Carrie touched lives and instilled hope, just like Princess Leia did throughout the galaxy.

    Carrie has been, and will forever, be sorely missed.

    In the words of Jedi Master Luke Skywalker: “No one is ever really gone’”. So raise your lightsabers today in memory of our General, our Princess, our Carrie.

    To us, she’ll always be royalty.

    A true Jedi!
    Ri-Lee Howell was a Jedi Master and historian of the Jedi Order. Howell collected many accounts of explorations of the Force in the two volumes of the Aionomica, Aionomicum I and Aionomicum II, carefully preserving the original texts.

    The character was named after Riley Howell, a University of North Carolina at Charlotte student who lost his life during the UNC Charlotte shooting on April 30, 2019 when he bravely attempted to stop the perpetrator. Following Riley's death, Lucasfilm Ltd. sent a letter to the Howell family telling them that the Lucasfilm Story Group had decided to create a character based on Riley as a small tribute.
