The "Black Tyrones" are a fictional Irish regiment mentioned in the works of Rudyard Kipling. The poem "The Ballad of Boh Da Thone" mentions their service in Burma (modern Myanmar) in pursuit of a prince-turned-robber named Da Thone and the vain efforts of Captain "Crook" O'Neil and his Black Tyrones to catch him. The regiment is also mentioned in Kipling's short stories Black Jack, The Courting of Dinah Shadd, The Incarnation of Krishna Mulvaney, Love-O'-Women, The Man Who Was, and With the Main Guard.
