A brief history of Ireland’s Memorial Records
In the early 1920s, £5,000 of the National War Memorial funds were spent collecting the records of all those who had fallen in WWI and publishing them in Ireland’s Memorial Records.
Featuring artwork from some of Ireland’s best artists, Ireland, Casualties of WWI lists over 49,000 Irish soldiers who died, and is the only publication to bring all of these names together in one beautifully decorated and bound volume.
