WW1 remembrance - in images

Specially for Armistice Day: a free e-book (for ipads and iphones) by Dublin photographer David O'Flynn has been made available at www.clix.ie. It can also be viewed on-pc-screen in a page-turning version by clicking the image below.

The 72-page book In Remembrance looks at how the Great War has been remembered on either side of the Ireland-Northern Ireland border.

Says the author: 'This book is about the remembrance of a sacrifice that didn't recognise or differentiate between the two different traditions in Ireland. A significant number fought for contradictory reasons; some fought to maintain Ireland's status within the Union, some fought for the promise of Home Rule for Ireland.

'Both traditions fought and died during the First World War but they are remembered differently.'
