New Book Traces History of Curragh Camp


 Soldiers of the Short Grass: A History of the Curragh Camp is the first complete history of this national landmark from 1855 to the present day, taking into account every facet of its development. The Curragh Camp had enormous implications for the outcome of Easter Week 1916 and the War of Independence. The story of the Curragh Camp is inextricably linked to the development of the Irish Defence Forces, which in turn is crucial to the history of Ireland. The book is written by Lt Col Dan Harvey, currently posted with the OSCE in Vienna and is available to purchase soon from Irish academic press.
