• Heroic Mayo

A fast moving, lively and thought provoking book, that should stand the test of time as a historical record. This book is a compliation of articles and stories about Mayo people who served and died with the allied forces during the world wars in other foreign wars and conflicts, as well as on United Nations peacekeeping operations. It features many previously unpublished personal family stories. A number of serious historical articles contributed by notable historians and journalists are also included. Whilst this book is essentially about Mayo it is a timeless reflection on a forgotten and ignored part of Irish history. It is sobering to think that 1,249 Mayo men were killied in action during WW2. These figures to not include civilian casualties. Others died in South Korea, Spain, Kora, Vietnam, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Ukraine.
