Remembering those who also remember — 2 Comments

  1. Ian,

    I’m fascinated to hear about “Operation Shamrock”.

    Ireland has a good record when it comes to looking after children less fortunate than our own – Chernobyl Children’s Trust being a classic example.

    We do indeed have a lot to be thankful to Germany for since joining the EU. I’m sorry we didn’t get to emulate their universal health service as well 🙁

  2. Ireland does have a good record for humanitarian aid, Steph. I was really amazed when I researched Operation Shamrock for my novel that more people don’t remember the initiative and praise the people who undertook it. It is such a commendable part of Irish history.
