Did your ancestors play rugby for Ireland?

Post by Christopher »

Some members may find this a useful source if their ancestors played Rugby for Ireland.

Seventeen Irish rugby internationals died in the First and Second World Wars. From the Boer War onwards, over thirty were decorated for their wartime service. The IRFU hold a number of books which record their sacrifice, including The Rugby Internationals Roll of Honour, (1919). The IRFU also have a large collection of National and Club histories that contain information of military interest. Some of this material would also be available in public libraries. Please write to the address shown above for further information.
