Ireland's WW1 Veterans
As it is now the centenary years of World War 1, the time has come to remember in a very public manner Ireland's World War 1 veterans. It is estimated 180,000 enlisted or volunteered from Ireland. At least 35,000 were casualties which is likely to mean there are approx 145,000 World War 1 veterans from Ireland.
World War 1 veterans had survived the living conditions and horrors of world war 1. For whatever reason they enlisted or volunteered, they all made an individual contribution that is well-worth remembering.
Ireland's World War 1 Veterans should be remembered, recognised and acknowledged in a very public manner and in a public place open to all. The aim of the project is to have a public memorial using the names listed on www.worldwar1veterans.com.
The public memorial to be in a central park location in the city of Dublin and the city of Belfast that would be a place of peace, quiet reflection and remembrance to honour these men and women.
It is the intention of the project to make a submission to the Dublin and London Governments and the Northern Ireland Executive for funding for a wall of honour of the names of Ireland's World War 1 Veterans.
Your support would be appreciated.
