It was only when David started to research the War that he realised his granddad, ‘Pop’, as he called him, had fought in many of the battles, the Somme being one of them. He was wounded twice and survived.
He has visited the War Graves in Kerry, Limerick, Cork and Glasnevin. He also went to the Memorial Gardens in Islandbridge. In 2009 he visited Enniskillen’s Commemorations. David has published, among other things, a book on his research called In Remembrance.
