This Irish County House and the Great War Oral History Collection celebrates and commemorate the memory of family members who took up arms in the Great War. Members of fifty-two families from all areas of Ireland were recorded in 2014 for this collection, and they speak of their family histories, their childhood homes, their family tradition of military service, their service records and the lives lived after the war by those who survived. Anecdotes relating to their personal lives and relationships are recounted, often with gentle humour and pathos, and the bitter heartbreak endured by parents and siblings on the death of a beloved family member is described.
