    The Country House and the Great War

    The Country House and the Great War

    World War One not only cost millions of lives, but it would also re-shape the social and political landscape of Europe. In country houses throughout Ireland and Britain, it changed patterns of life that had been going on for centuries.    Prof Terry Dooley, director of the Centre for the Study of Historic Irish Houses & Estates, and Dr. Chris Ridgway, curator of the Castle Howard stately home in North Yorkshire discussed how the landed gentry were affected by the war.  They started by talking about the people who lived in these country houses at the start of the war. Questions they ...

    Rufus Rigney, Aborigine soldier in WW1

    Rufus Rigney, Aborigine soldier in WW1 by Mary Russell On a lovely warm April day, two weeks ago, I took a train from Brussels to the small Flanders town of Harelbeke. I had a map to tell me where to go – not a map that showed streets or railway stations but one that marked the row upon row of white grave stones in the small grassy cemetery where a solitary bee buzzed among the aubretia. Plot eleven, the map said, Row D, Grave number 7. And yes, there it was – a stone like all the others and marked ...

    Irish who served in Australian army during WW1

    Irish who served in Australian army during WW1

    Each year on 25 April, Anzac day commemorates Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in wars. And in particular, those who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War One.  Among them were thousands of Irish born men and women who enlisted in the Anzacs. Prof Jeff Kildea, who holds the Keith Cameron Chair of Australian History at UCD has researched the connections between the Anzacs and the Irish in World War One.   He joined Myles to talk about some of those who were involved. Jeff estimates that 6,600 Irish-born men and women served in the Australian Imperial Force ...

    Food and World War One

    Food and World War One

    Brown Stew mightn’t sound like the most appetising of dishes, but this is typical of the sort of fare that sustained soldiers in the trenches during World War One.    Historians Bryce Evans of Liverpool Hope University and John Borgonovo of University College Cork have researched various aspects of food and the First World War. Bryce talked about the food riots involving Liverpool Irish that followed the sinking of the Lusitania (see Bryce's article below "Food Riots in the First World War"). Meanwhile, John told us about food shortages in Cork, in late 1917 and early 1918 where there was public anxiety ...
