Honouring Ireland`s war dead

31 October 2011

Glasnevin is Ireland's largest cemetery and resting place for some of the country's most important figures, including Eamon de Valera, Michael Collins and Daniel O'Connell. It is also where the graves of 208 men and women who died whilst serving with British forces in the two world wars are to be found. As part of an ongoing project to locate and mark these graves, people who are related to these men and women are being urged to contact The Glasnevin Trust and help finish this important piece of work. A special Remembrance Day service will be held at the cemetery at 15:00 GMT on 11 November 2011. A full list of the 208 casualties can be found here: www.glasnevintrust.ie
