The 11th November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. To commemorate this anniversary and to pay tribute to those men and women from County Wexford who lost their lives in this war, Wexford County Council Public Library Service has developed a public history research project. The aim of the project is to engage with the public online, to deliver a comprehensive list of persons from County Wexford who died in the Great War. The long term objective is to tell the unique stories and to commemorate the loss of the over 850 Wexford men and women who lost their lives as a result of the war.
The public are invited to add to this record by telling Wexford Libraries the life story, as they know it, of their family member, or neighbour who died as a result of the Great War. To contact us with information, please use the contact form on the website or email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Great War Dead’ in the subject line.
