Have your say on Donegal WWI Book of Honour 08.11.17

DONEGAL County Museum is updating and reprinting its Book of Honour of everyone from the county who died in the Great War of 1914-1918.
To assist the museum, the public are invited to consult the draft version of the book to check the details provided and advise the museum of any new names that should be added.
The County Donegal Book of Honour was first published 15 years ago and was "the culmination of the hard work and dedication of Paddy Harte Snr and the County Donegal Book of Honour committee who oversaw the research and compilation of all the information contained within the book," a museum spokesperson said.

In the years since, more information has become available on the men and women who died, including those who enlisted in countries such as Canada, Australia and the USA.
Donegal County Museum plans to launch the updated book in November 2018 to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I and "as a tribute to all those from Donegal who died".
You can view the draft version on Donegalcoco.ie or by appointment at Donegal County Museum.
If you have any updated or new information or wish to amend any information, please fill in the details on the Book of Honour form and post or email it to County Donegal Book of Honour, Donegal County Museum, High Road, Letterkenny Co Donegal. You can also email to donegalbookofhonour@donegalcoco.ie by December 31, 2017.
