  • Irish War Memorials: New website
    not record date of erection of memorials The National Graves Association may be able to help Comment posted by Michael Pegum on Tuesday 28 April 2015 Maria Fitzgerald It is always encouraging to hear that someone has found a relative on the website Comment posted by Michael Pegum on Tuesday 28 April 2015 Patrick Fraser Johnson I have some information about Michael Ahearne I will reply by e mail Comment posted by Patricia Tardif on Monday 11 May 2015 What a wonderful site and so helpful being able to go straight to the regiment being researched in my case the North Irish Horse Comment posted by Michael Pegum on Monday 11 May 2015 Hi Patricia I m glad you find it useful It s very encouraging to hear from users Best wishes Michael Pegum Comment posted by Peter Dobbs on Thursday 13 August 2015 I refer to the Wheeler Roll of Honour that is displayed at Rathmullan House Hotel in Co Donegal The list inventory number 886 recorded by Michael Pegum on 23 5 2015 incorrectly states George Wheeler B E The B E should be V C George Campbell Wheeler was awarded the VC for an action in Mesopotamia on 23rd February 1917 when he and men of 2 9th Gurkas were tasked with crossing the river Tigris at Shumran bend and clearing Turkish forces from the opposite bank I think this error is worthy of correction Comment posted by Michael Pegum on Thursday 13 August 2015 Wheeler Roll of Honour The list for each memorial is a transcription of what actually appears on the memorial In this case the transcription is correct as the Roll says George Wheeler B E and does not mention the V C Comment posted by Michael Pegum on Friday 14 August 2015 Peter Dobbs is quite right in fact The initials after George Wheeler s name are V C not B E The pdf has been corrected I am grateful to Peter for pointing out this error Comment posted by Michael Daly on Tuesday 13 October 2015 Excellent site clear and precise well done I note the Lansdowne FC 1st WW memorial is not listed it contains the names of over 40 club members who are known to have died in the Great War Its inscription is brief yet poignant They Played the Game The Memorial itself was unveiled on 27th October 1923 when the Club founder and 1st President H G W Dunlop formally opened the then new Tea Pavilion at the corner of the Lansdowne road main pitch The tea rooms had originally been approved in April 1914 but construction was deferred when war broke out I can provide some articles on Lansdowne s involvement in WW1 by myself and another member of Lansdowne Ciaran O Mara The Club also has an exhibition of WW1 records and memorabilia on display in the clubhouse at present Kind regards Michael Daly Comment posted by Michael Pegum on Tuesday 13 October 2015 Many thanks
