‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’ – An Irish story of the Great War

21 July 2014 | Kate Clements

The University of Limerick has developed an online exhibition to coincide with the First World War Centenary. It follows the lives of the Armstrong family throughout the war to illustrate the social, physical and emotional impact of the conflict. It is based on the diaries, correspondence, photographs and memorabilia accumulated by the Armstrong family of Moyaliffe Castle, County Tipperary, between 1914 and 1918.

The exhibition – which will run until 2018 – consists of a weekly post of material from 100 years ago that week detailing life for the Armstrongs and their friends in the lead up to, and during, the war.
