Gentleman's Military Interest Club

Two more queries to test your knowledge (and add to mine!). Of the two scans attached, the first is a silver metal badge, 57mm across, with a vertical brooch-pin fastening. As can be seen, it has a Victorian crown. This came to me many years ago as a possible piper's badge of the Connaught Rangers. I have never pursued this to confirm the identification and would be interested to hear if anyone can verify it or otherwise christen the badge.

The second badge is all brass, 38mm across, with officer-type blades horizontally placed. This badge was identified as "Republican 1916", but, again, has any Gentleman any further information to offer on this badge. It is unusual to have this type of fastening on a plain brass badge, but equally, does it make sense that an Irish Republican badge should be British made?
