"Birr Military Cemetery: a history of the cemetery and those interred there" By Stephen Callaghan.
This newly published book details the history of Birr Military Cemetery and the people identified as buried there.
While only 52 memorials remain in the cemetery, the author has painstakingly tried to identify as many of the people buried there as possible.
The book gives context to the cemetery with a brief history of Birr Barracks. A detailed history of the Garrison Church, the Boer War memorial to the death casualties of the 3rd Battalion Leinster Regiment, and the Leinster Regiment memorials in St Brendan’s Church (C of I) are also provided which is sure to make for fascinating reading.
