He joined the Austrian Army in 1847 and became Captain of cuirassier regiment No2. and served through the Hungarian revolutionary war.
He was nominated to train and command the Irish battalion of St. Patrick to fight for Pope Pius IX in 1860.
The original choice of a commanding officer of the Irish fell on Major Fitzgerald. he actually arrived at Ancona and took command of four companies but owning to his rank in the Austrian army it was deemed inadvisable that Fitzgerald should accept command of a Battallion in the Papal Army and the choice fell on Major Myles Reilly's.
