The former Dean of St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, Rev Victor Stacey recently died. We listen back to his contribution to Soul Waves from 2014.
In this piece we hear him talking about the Armistice between the Allies and the Germans which came into effect and the Great War was over. It had lasted four years and had claimed the lives of 37 million men, women and children. In 2014, Ireland marked the outbreak of that war and remembering the many Irish casualties.
In 2014, RTE Television broadcast the Remembrance Sunday for the first time, commemorating these victims. Here we hear the then Dean of St. Patrick’s, the Very Reverend Victor Stacey describe the service to Paul Loughlin.
