      Great Pictures

      who is the lady with the wreat and the green blazer
      Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
      Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
      The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
      The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
      The best lack all conviction, while the worst
      Are full of passionate intensity.

            I wonder who the person from the 7th Bn association was...

              can i ask why there are Aussies buried in Grangegorman???

              where they wounded in WW1 and being treated in dublin?
              But there's no danger
              It's a professional career
              Though it could be arranged
              With just a word in Mr. Churchill's ear
              If you're out of luck you're out of work
              We could send you to johannesburg.

                That or they may have died in England and been brought here by relatives for burial. Ther's one in Mitchelstown like that. You'll find lots of Aussies, New Zealanders and Canadians buried here.

                      There are 10 Anzac Survivors buried there, Some were lost on the mailboat that was sunk of the irish coast , the rest died from their wounds that were sent here to recover.

                          The Royal Irish Regiment was one of the first units ashore.
