Deeds not Words was blanched by Professor John A Murphy on November 11th 1998. This date marks the 80th anniversary of the end of the Great War and joint dedication of the Ireland Memorial at Messines in Belgium by President Mary McAleese and H.M. Queen Elizabeth 11. because of the prevailing ideology in the Irish State after independence, the participation of Irish soldiers in both World Wars has remained a neglected, if not discouraged subjects until relatively recently. Deeds Not Words helps to redress this neglect. It enriches the heritage of Wilson’s Hospital School, and makes a significant contribution to Ireland/ World War studies. In undertaking this work, the author shows commendable initiative, borne out by painstaking research.
