As Ireland and the world remembers Armistice Day, and the Remembrance celebrations continue for the rest of this week.   Here at we would like to re-direct you to two podcasts that remember those Irish people who lost their lives in wars across the world.  If you visit our  People & Places category,  Michael Feeney will give you a guided tour of  the Mayo Peace Park and in another podcast Paul and Chris talk about working at The War Memorial in Bray, County Wicklow.

“And where the earth was soft for flowers we made
A grave for him that he might better rest.
So, Spring shall come and leave it seet arrayed,
And there the lark shall turn her dewy nest.
”  Excerpt from A Soldier’s Grave by Francis Ledwidge (1887-1917 Ireland)
