Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I'm into genealogy tracing maternal side at the mo, Irish Grandad served with British Army in WW1. I have his number and regt and all his pension details but keep coming across "Shanakiel".
    Mum tells me it was/is an ex-service mens home/hospital in Cork City.
    I want to track Grandad's medical docs from his time in there.
    Mum says he suffered with a chest ailment of some sort....she is heading toward 80 so the memory is a little hazy to say the least.

    So...anyone heard of Shanakiel or know anything about the place??

    I have spoken to people at Shanakiel District Hospital they hold no records from when it was a BMH.
