DIGGERS REMEMBERED

Dublin History Group will commemorate its local WW1 soldiers who were killed in action or did not return with a special tree-planting ceremony later in the year. DHG committee member, Pat Thompson, said a tree would be planted and accompanying commemorative plaque installed to honour the soldiers at the Dublin Institute grounds in November.

Pat said the group was hoping to contact direct descendants or family members to invite them to attend the event, and was also looking for any photographs or memorabilia of the soldiers. If you can help out the list of 22 soldiers is printed below.
