“It would be nice for anyone who had an ancestor who took part in the War to have him or her commemorated in the book. As the centenary of the start of WW1 is almost upon us the book will be a memorial to all those who took part but were forgotten.

“If you have photos, stories, memorabilia of any kind in relation to men or women who took part in the First World War and had a connection with Edenderry, I’d love to hear form you.

“Whether it is a person who died in the War or one who survived and returned to civilian life in Edenderry or elsewhere, I’d love to hear about them. All information welcome, no matter how small.

“If you would like your ancestor included, please contact Catherine on 086 3608838 or email at edenderryww1@gmail.com
