Talk on Returning Veterans at the end of World War I

Many commemorations of the Great War will be conducted in 2018 as it marks the 100th anniversary of the armistice, the end of World War I. There are many stories to be remembered and told of the battles, the politics and the people.

Carlow Historical & Archaeological Society will commemorate this anniversary with a lecture presented by Paul Maguire from the Carlow Military Museum who will talk specifically about the returning veterans from WWI. Thousands of veterans returned and Paul will discuss their relationship with the new republic but also how many were in need of psychological and surgical support.

‘Returning Veterans at the end of World War I’ presented by Paul Maguire will take place in Leighlinbridge Parish Centre on Wednesday 21st November at 8pm.

As always admission is free and all are welcome.
