by The Committee of the Irish National War Memorial
The objective of the 8 volumes and 3,177 pages that are reproduced here was to preserve the names of over 49,000 Irishmen who lost their lives fighting in World War I. The collection was compiled by The Committee of the Irish National War Memorial under the direction of the Earl of Ypres. It was published in 1923. It records the names of the dead, their rank, regiment, date of death and regimental number. In most cases the soldier's county or place of birth and the place and date of death are recorded. All 32 counties in Ireland lost men in the Great War. More than 5,000 from Antrim, 4,800 from Dublin and 3,000 from Cork alone. Indeed it is likely that every village, town and city in Ireland at the time was touched in some way by the loss. Beautiful artwork by the renowned Irish artist Harry Clarke completes this unique production, as users can view high quality scanned images from the original publication. Only one hundred copies of the original publication were ever produced. It is extremely rare.
Apologies to anyone who has had difficulty viewing this publication. Problem should be resolved now. If you still encounter problems please do let me know below. Thank you.
I am having the same problem. After several seconds of the download scrollbar going from left to right I am left with a blank screen with the PDF toolbar across the top. I am running Windows 10 and IE 11
Hi Donald, thank you very much for the information. The problem does seem to be an Internet Explorer 11 one. I will get the developers on to it. It opens in both Firefox and Chrome with no problems. Please do feel free to get in touch by email (see above) if you like.
