It is with great sorrow that I need to announce that Brendan Hall, the curator of this website, passed away recently.
This website which has been active for almost twenty years, is a unique source of genealogical and historical information on Co Louth. It averages 50,000 hits a year from all over the world.
It is my intention to maintain this website and to update it as often as I can.
Unfortunately as I am not a genealogist, I cannot respond to requests for genealogical advice, and I would respectfully ask those with genealogical queries to look to others for information in that regard. Thank you Donal Hall
Louth and WWI
1914-1918 - The Returned Army: County Louth Servicemen in the Great War
by Donal Hall. This is an on-going list, now with some 1,600 names, that
complements his book on County Louth war dead (more than 800
recorded). The list has been updated with the names of 60 men from the
Australian Forces, all with County Louth connections. The commitment of men
and women to the war effort was immense.
