The #ForgottenIrish of Co. Dublin

The latest #ForgottenIrish story looking at Co. Dublin is now available on Storify. Tens of thousands of Dubliners were impacted by the American Civil War, both in Ireland and America. Its consequences stayed with many until well into the twentieth century. This is the seventh county to be examined, joining  CorkKerryDonegal, GalwayCavan and Sligo. Ireland has thus far chosen not to remember or commemorate the in excess of 200,000 men and their families who were caught up in this conflict. These Storify pieces offer just a handful of their stories. You can read the Dublin Storify by clicking here.
