A searchable database of over 1,000 people from Co Donegal who died as a result of World War 1 has been launched by Donegal County Museum
The database was compiled as part of Donegal County Council’s Decade of Centenaries Commemorative Programme and contains information on each known person from the county who died as a result of WW1.
Entries include the person’s name, service number and place of birth, as well as additional information researched by Donegal County Museum staff.
Assistant Curator at the museum Caroline Carr said the database is a work in progress with further information, including more photographs, yet to be uploaded.
There are 1,148 names included so far, but Ms Carr said that the database is designed to be updated as new information is uncovered and she said they welcome anyone with new information to contact the museum in Letterkenny.
