A Guinness connection

Mon, Mar 5, 2012, 00:00

Sir, – I am an MA student in the school of history and archives, University College Dublin.

I am researching for a dissertation on participation by employees from Guinness Brewery at St James’s Gate in Dublin in the first World War. I would welcome an opportunity to meet descendants of the brewery men who took part in the Great War. I would like to hear their stories, read their letters from the Front Line and record any personal anecdotes which their families might wish to share.

Any information or personal memorabilia will be treated with respect and confidence and will be used only for the purpose of academic research. I can be contacted at anne.maddock@ucd.ie. – Yours, etc,


Sycamore Road,

Mount Merrion, Co Dublin.
