  • My husband, Joseph Michael Ashe was given two medals by his grandfather, Pte. Michael Ashe of the Connemara Rangers. He survived, but suffered his whole remaining years with what today is called PTSD. Do you have a list of those in Galway who fought and survived? They should also be remembered as they lived only to suffer.

  • Hi Jane,
    The best guide to Galway’s Great War dead are the books by William Henry. You will find full details for them in our Further Information and Research section above. His book Forgotten Heroes is an exhaustive list of Galway’s service men and women in WWI.
