World War 1 anniversary programming on Irish television

As the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War approaches, there are many television and radio programmes scheduled to commemorate the event.

A full list of relevant programmes on Irish television and radio can be found here:  http://www.rte.ie/worldwar1/schedule/

Two programmes in particular look very relevant for Fr Doyle. On Monday July 28th there is a documentary about the 4 Irish regiments that took part in the war. And on Wednesday July 30th there is a documentary about the famous Jesuit military chaplain Fr Frank Browne. Fr Browne and Fr Doyle were close companions, and Fr Browne was a great admirer of Fr Doyle’s. Both programmes air at 19.00 on RTE 1. Fr Doyle should really be mentioned in one or other of the programmes. I suspect that they will also be available online afterwards, and I will post links to allow international visitors to watch the programmes on the internet.
