Remembering The Fallen

The names of more than seven thousand Irish soldiers who were killed during the Second World War will be brought together for the first time today in a roll of honour.
The 7,500 officers, who served in the British armed forces, will be unveiled at Trinity College Dublin and a copy will be on display for the public to read in the College’s library.

More than 3,600 men and women from the South are thought to have died serving in the British Forces between 1939 and 1945.

Almost 3,900 men and women from Northern Ireland died while in service.
