Armagh & the Great War --- The History Press Ireland
Challenging perceptions of support and objection
At a time when Ireland is re-examining the nature of its involvement in the Great War, historian Colin Cousins looks at the same question, but from a Unionist perspective. This book will challenge earlier perceptions of unionist enthusiasm, patriotism and loyalty.
Using many previously unseen sources, the author looks at the role played by charities, schools and youth groups, the role of womens associations and concludes with an analysis of how the war dead were remembered and commemorated.
