Clare in World
War Two / The Emergency
The aim of this project is to find out how many men and women from Clare took part in WW2 / The Emergency, and the effect of the war on Clare. It is hoped that an extension will be added to the Great War Memorial in Ennis that will include the names of the Clare War Dead from WW2 / The Emergency.
Included below is an Alphabetical list of those from Clare who were involved in WW2, an index of where they came from, individual profiles, stories from Clare, a timeline for those who died and a list of the graves and memorials where they are buried or remembered. It is hoped that this database will be updated and expanded as more information becomes available online and from relatives throughout the world.
I would like to thank Keir McNamara,
and his late father Peadar McNamara for all their research on WW1 and
WW2. Eric Shaw, who
has been providing
me with amazing WW1 and WW2 information for years, and all the following
who have helped make this project possible. Paddy Waldron, Local
Studies Centre, Peter Beirne, Brian Doyle, Guss O’Halloran, Sean
Glennon, Jim Molohan, Joe Ó Muircheartaigh, Eddie Lough, Local
Parish Booklets, The Clare Champion and The Clare People. I have also
named the sources,
with many of the names below. Finally thanks to Clare County Library
for publishing all the information, and Larry and James Brennan along
the Clare Roots Society, for all their help.
