Memory of the Fallen - Future of the Living

The Royal British Legion has struck this special Centenary Irish Poppy pin to honour and commemorate the memory of the Irish men and women from across the Island of Ireland who gave their lives in service with British, Commonwealth (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa) or Allied Forces (USA) in the Great Wars.
This high quality enamel lapel pin presents an evocative emblem of Irish Remembrance intended to draw particular attention to the sacrifice of the people of Ireland in both World Wars. The simple, attractive and distinctively Irish iconography also allows the wearer to express their Irish identity, origin or decent wherever they may be.

This new Irish Poppy is intended to promote greater public awareness of the legitimacy of the Remembrance Poppy within an Irish context; particularly during this period of centenary commemorations for the Great War in which so many men from all corners of Ireland served and died together.

LIMERICK AND THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION   

Of the 300,000 Irishmen who served during the Great War almost 50,000 lost their lives; proportionately more than any other country. At least 1000 of these casualties are known to be men from Limerick. But among the servicemen who returned from the war were many were wounded, dependent or in need of support.

It was against this background that the veterans of the Great War themselves founded The British Legion in 1921. Then, as now, their mission was to provide help and support to veterans and their families, exemplifying their motto 'service not self'. The Legion also became the nation's custodian of Remembrance, ensuring that people remember those who have paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy today. The organisation received the "Royal" appellation in 1971 in recognition of it's work.

But even though the generation of the Great War has now passed, the Royal British Legion maintains its relevance in Limerick and the Republic of Ireland today. Not just in keeping faith with the Fallen in Remembrance, but also as an important resource in the continuing welfare and support of the numerous men and women in Ireland who served in the Allied Forces during World War II and later. 

The Legion is a charity, funded entirely by our members subscriptions and by public donations through our well known 'Poppy Appeal'. Because of the Poppy Appeal  and our network of volunteer welfare workers we were able to help 600 ex-Service people in the Republic of Ireland during 2010 alone and our work continues today.
