The landings of allied forces in Gallipoli during World War I.

In 1990 the Limerick Branch of the Royal British Legion gathered in Perry Square to commemorate those who died at the Dardanelles and Gallipoli.

Eamon O'Toole spoke as his colleagues stood to attention, many of them wearing their medals. 

We are gathered here today to honour the memory of the men of Limerick who fell in battle at the Dardonelles and Gallipoli 75 years ago.

When asked if Ireland had forgotten those who died in the British Army in the two world wars, Eamon O'Toole replied:

To a certain extent it has, yes, that is regrettable but the legion does not forget.
