RTÉ is devoting considerable coverage to the centenary on TV and radio, details of which can be found here. There are also a number of specially commissioned articles and reports available on the RTÉ website. The current issue of History Ireland also devotes a good deal of space to the end of the war, and its aftermath.
A wide variety of events – commemorations, exhibitions, lectures, seminars, services – are scheduled to commemorate the end of the war across Ireland; explore our listings for armistice centenary events here. Readers are also encouraged to check with local churches as appropriate for details of any religious services to mark the centenary.
Finally, the understandable emphasis on the First World War in November 2018 is a reason to highlight online resources available for those who wish to learn more about the wider war. Listings of the Irish dead of the war can be found on Ireland’s memorial records, while the Commonwealth War Graves Commission provides details of those interred in cemeteries and recorded on war memorials.
The context of the conflict can be explored via resources such as the International Encyclopedia of the First World War; a very useful selection of World War One resources is also available online from the British Library. The digitised collections of Europeana 1914-1918 offer access to primary sources on the war from across the continent, while a distinct Irish perspective is provided by the online exhibitions developed by the National Library of Ireland and RTÉ, along the with the Trinity College Dublin exhibition Fit as fiddles and hard as nails: Irish soldiers voices from the Great War.
