November 11th, marks both Remembrance Day in Ireland and the “Commonwealth Countries,” and Veteran’s Day in the United States of America. Although no official holiday is observed on the 11th of November in the Republic of Ireland, the Irish National War Memorial Gardens stand in Dublin as a memorial to the 49,400 Irish soldiers who lost their lives in World War I.
To help mark the occasion and honor those who lost their lives in “The Great War,” we offer the following links to articles relating to World War I and the Irish who made the ultimate sacrifice.
A discussion is underway with regard to the very personal decision of whether or not to wear a poppy to commemorate Remembrance Day. Add your voice HERE.
