Ronan McGreevy of the Irish Times, author of Wherever the Firing Line Extends, has produced a fascinating documentary entitled The Irish at Passchendeale, in which Fr Doyle features significantly. It is also of wider historical interest, telling the story of Irish troops in the war, and places Fr Doyle’s service in context.
Ronan has kindly arranged a special screening of the video at Veritas on Abbey Street next Friday, September 1, at 1pm. All welcome, however please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your seat, as space is limited.
A trailer for the documentary is available below.
