From shoebox to Window Box Remembrance of WW1 in Ireland
September 30 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm
Who were the ex-service men and what challenges did they face?
This talk will explore the demise and rebirth of remembrance through the life of the National War Memorial Gardens in Islandbridge, and the emergence of WW1 awareness through new memorials, exhibitions, national media, education, and societies.
What contribution did remembrance of WW1 make to reconciliation and the Irish Peace process and where does remembrance sit today?
