Irish ARRSErs poppy wreath

#1
I thought it would be appropriate to lay a poppy wreath at the Islandbridge Memorial cross yesterday on behalf of all Irish ARRSErs (North & South, and abroad). My father, myself, and two good friends went there yesterday afternoon.

Dublin I take it?
the very place - one of its more salubrious suburbs

Interesting, I was under the impression that it wasn't allowed or considered taboo to do so due to the Irish Indepdence war history etc, has Ireland matured that much to draw a line under past wars with England, I do remember the Easter Parade in Dublin not so long ago with the Irish army outside the GPO, apparently a British Army Liason Officer was present.

Cheers Galloglass, just stumbled on this thread. That was a really nice gesture, and very much appreciated by many here in Ireland. I do believe that this year in particular there has been a very positive response from many here in the rememberance of Irishmen that fell during the wars.

Mordread doffs his hat in that mans direction.
