On the 15th September we published an item on our website about how the Committee was trying to find out more about Terenure's connection, if any, with World War 1 (WW1).
Click on the links below to find out more about:
- Thomas Murray, a veteran of WW1 who lived in Rathfarnham
- Leo Valentine who fought and died at the Somme and whose letters home to his mother were found in a box in a house in Terenure
- the Europeana 1914-1918 website which contains materials and resources from all over the world about WW1
- the WW1 roadshow hosted by the National Library of Ireland at Trinity College, Dublin in July 2014.
Many thanks to Professor Eunan O'Halpin, Professor of Contemporary Irish History, Trinity College, Dublin, and to Katherine McSharry, National Library of Ireland, for their assistance.
