South Dublin Libraries Local Studies section has just finished compiling a Roll of Honour of men from the current South Dublin County parishes who died in the First World War. Click HERE to view.
It will be located on South Dublin Libraries’ “Source” Digital Archive from tomorrow, the 12th of November.
The list was compiled from printed publications, WWI memorials, CD and online databases.
The Roll of Honour lists those men whose death record includes the name of the parish in which they were either born or resided. However not all of the death records include this information, and for this reason the list is incomplete.
If you know of any person who died in the First World War, was born or resided in the South Dublin County area (Tallaght, Lucan, Clondalkin, Newcastle, Palmerstown/Palmerston, Rathfarnham, Saggart, Rathcoole or Whitechurch) and would like the person included in the Roll of Honour, please send as many details as you have (Name, Rank, Number, Regiment, year of death) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will find additional detail for inclusion in the Roll.
More information on sources to help you research relatives who served in WWI can be found HERE .
Watch this space for upcoming Irish UN Peacekeeping and World War 2 Rolls of Honour.
