In July 1919, the Irish National War Memorial Trust was set up to establish some kind of permanent memorial to the Irishmen killed in the War. A country-wide fund-raising campaign brought in donations of £42,000, of which about £5,000 was spent on collecting the records of those who had died and publishing their names in a monumental eight-volume work, 'Ireland's Memorial Records'. The volumes were printed by Maunsell & Roberts in Dublin in a limited edition of one hundred copies, and the stained-glass artist Harry Clarke was commissioned to design decorative borders for each page. This page displays the entry for the poet Francis Ledwidge killed in 1917.
