Fr Michael Bergin SJ from Fancroft, Roscrea, died on 12 October 1917, serving as a chaplain in the First World War. He holds the distinction of having been the only member of the whole Australian forces in the First World War to never to have set foot in Australia, and the only Catholic chaplain serving to have died as a result of enemy action.

The exhibition at Roscrea Library, Tipperary, 2-31 October 2017, will focus on Fr Michael Bergin SJ, and the five other Jesuits, who served as chaplains with the Australian forces. http://www.jesuitarchives.ie/blog/fr-michael-bergin-sj/
