Get involved | Do you want to be part of this project?
We are looking for schools, historians and individuals to help us create a definitive list of all of those who took part or lost their lives during Ireland’s other conflicts including the War of Independence, the Irish Civil War and the Easter Rising. If you know of a relative or neighbour who had a part to play in these conflicts, we would like to hear from you. Get your school involved, ask elderly members in your community and share your findings with us via this form or email: info@myadoptedsoldier.com
