    D Day Commemoration

    D Day Commemoration

    Despite our neutrality, Ireland and Irish men were to play a significant part in the landings. RTE’s Donal Byrne made a documentary of about the Irishmen who played their part in the Normandy landings, one of whom was Pat Gillen whom he interviewed in Witnesses to War and he joined Sean this morning. Sean was also joined by historian Michael Kennedy of the Royal Irish Academy to tell us more about the Irish angle to D Day. In 2004 Derek Davis went to Normandy to record a documentary about the D Day landings. Listen here: http://www.rte.ie/radio1/doconone/dday60.html
