Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Dublin City Libraries have released a small collection of letters previously held by the Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Monica Roberts set up a 'Band of Helpers' to provide gifts and comforts to men at the Western Front, who were members of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers or the Royal Flying Corps. Roberts also kept a contemporary diary from Easter Week 1916, which includes her eye-witness account of the Rising.
