AA Great Sacrfice

Cork servicemen who died in the great war

Editors: Gerry White and Brendan O 'Shea

 

This book is the fruits of a Book of Honour project launched by the Cork City and County Vocational Education Committee.

March 2009 began the initative to produce an accessible record of the men and women from Cork City and County who lost their lives in the Great War. The Book represents the culmination of that work and provides information on how these people died, the location of their graves, the places where they are commemorated and the historical context within which the war was fought.

2nd June 2010 ,The Rt. Hon. Lord Mayor of Cork ,Cllr. Darragh Murphy and County Cork Mayor Cllr. Derry Canty launched this Book in the City Hall Cork.

It is hoped that this book will finally bring closure to those families who seek it, and due recognition to Cork's war dead who most certainly deserve it . They fought and died in order that succeding generations might live in freedom we take for granted. Their sacrifice was truly enormous and deserve to be remembered.
