Launch of Landscapes of War and Peace

The launch took place on Monday night, of ‘Landscapes of War and Peace 1914-2014: War Poetry and Peacekeeping’ by Michael J. Whelan.

This exhibition, which is part of the Red Line Book Festival, includes an Irish soldier’s poems and images inspired by the poets of the Great War and his own peacekeeping duties in modern day conflicts in the Middle-East and Balkans. Also being exhibited are historical artefacts and documents of family history over the past 100 years, poems and other paraphernalia from World War I and UN Peacekeeping duties.

Thank you to Mayor Fintan Warfield and Brigadier General Paul Fry who launched the exhibition.

The exhibition can be viewed at the County Library, Tallaght until 23rd October 2014, during library opening hours.
