World War 1 - The Wexford Casualties


Seamus and Joe Seery

On the 28th of June 1914 the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne, was assassinated in Sarajevo by Gavrilo Princip, a Serbian anarchist. The murder of the Archduke was the spark that lit the fuse that caused the explosion that ignited all of Europe in the form of the Great War 1914-1918.

John Redmond and Recruitment in Wexford

Britain entered the war in 1914 and immediately introduced conscription. For political reasons this was never extended to Ireland, but members of the Anglo-Irish community were quick to join the ranks and defend the Empire. John Redmond, leader of the Home Rule party urged members of the Catholic community to enlist, believing that Ireland would be given Home Rule as a reward for its support. Speaking at the Parade of Irish Volunteers on the 20th September 1914 at Woodenbridge, Co. Wicklow, he declared:

'The war is undertaken in defence of the highest principle of religion and morality and right, and it would be a disgrace for ever to our country, and a reproach to her manhood, and a denial of the lessons of her history, if young Ireland confined their efforts to remaining at home to defend the shores of Ireland from an unlikely invasion, and shrunk from duty of proving on the field of battle that gallantry and courage which has distinguished our race through its history.'

Stories of German atrocities in Catholic Belgium were a further incentive to join. (These rumours were gratefully used by the British propaganda machine). In Taghmon, men from both religious backgrounds enlisted. Many men had joined the armed forces before the war as the army provided secure employment and a comparatively good income at a time of high unemployment and low wages.

The Number of Irish Casualties

Many of those who enlisted would not return. Significant numbers died in far off places like the Dardenelles or the trenches of Northern France and Belgium, far from the peaceful pastures of their young lives in the Taghmon district. The exact number of Irish who died in the Great War is listed as anything from 27,000 to 55,000 depending on what figures are taken. The Irish War Memorial records quote a figure of 49,400, the Registrar General's official return was 27,405, while other sources state that it was nearer to 30,000 . The total recorded deaths on land from County Wexford was about 500 and approximately 15 of these casualties were from the Taghmon district. This article is a record of the personal and army details that are available on these men. Those killed in battle arenas other than on land are not listed, except in very few circumstances.

Taghmon War Participants 1914/18

While no exact figures are available, it can be estimated that at least 30 and possibly as high as 50 young men from Taghmon and district fought in the Great War. While a few had joined before the outbreak of war, the majority enlisted in 1914.

Lance Corporal M. J. (Mike) Martin, 3rd Battalion Royal Irish Regiment, from Taghmon, appealed to his contemporaries in a letter to Sergeant Donohoe of the Recruiting Staff for Wexford - 'to place to one side the football and the play-book, and take up the sword, to play a man's part in this great fight in the cause of liberty and justice. They will not regret it, I can assure them, and when afterwards they are asked what they did in the Great War they can answer with pride - I have played a man's part, I did my bit', he wrote.

Mike Martin would be horrified to read the views of today's historians concerning the utter carnage of the Great War. There was nothing glorious about the participation of the largely innocent and uninformed recruits in what Professor Joe Lee has called 'the most frightening exhibition of mass slaughter in history'. 'The saving grace for the human race is that nobody planned it that way. Had the generals and politicians – and what about all those laughing faces in the trains in August 1914 taking the soldiers towards the front, as if they were day-trippers to a sporting event – known what they were doing, they would indeed be guilty men. Stupidity, or at least myopia, is the justification for the sustained mass slaughter' .

Those who did enlist in the British Army faced a dangerous and uncertain future. Many ended up in the trenches of Northern France. Adam Monaghan, who enlisted with his three brothers in 1914, described life in the trenches in his poem 'Tommy in The Trenches'.

When I came here to France, the truth I tell
The bullets were flying and the shrapnel as well;
And as for the trenches, they were a fine sight
We stood to our waists in cold water all night.
When later our officer took a walk around.
He made all the complaints that could then be found.
'Go to the advance trench and stand to all night
For remember my boys you came here to fight.'

When out of the trenches to billets, we go
We all march along quiet steady and slow.
And should 'Kaiser Billy' get up to his tricks.
We've the men in the trenches with their bayonets fixed
I am sure the 'old war lord' is nearly fed up.
He's afraid of the contract he made with 'Miss Krupp;'
He knows it's impossible for him to win,
For Kitchener means to take over Berlin

The Frenchman to us is a friend staunch and true,
He tries very hard to make us 'parlez vous'
And although to poor Tommy the language is new.
We are getting on well and say 'oui' or 'un peu'
We dine in the trenches at 'Hotel de mud'
And when dinner is served it fair stirs up your blood
The music is classic, it sounds very well,
Its the whistling and bursting of 'Allemandes' shell.

Sometimes to a farmhouse we dodge by the way
And say 'Donnez moi un tasse du cafe au lait'
We go everyday for 'du lait' in a can
And they charge us a franc for 'un pied du pain'.
Now as bomb thrower, I wanted to be
I wished for some easy staff job don't you see ?
I am there on the staff and there's no need to shout,
For we're ready the minute it comes to 'turn out'.

The bomb throwers work when attacks they should come
Up right in the front on the heels of the 'Hun'
He starts throwing bombs without any delay.
And for the bold Infantry makes clear the way.
We have our brave General Succeed to please;
We've practised with 'Hales' and with 'W.D's'
With 'jam tins' and 'brush mobs' and gas pipes as well,
When we get near the Germans they'll think they're in Hell.

I hear very soon we'll be going on leave
It'll be a quiet a treat to forget 'Bully Beef'
And as for our biscuits- they're so very hard
I've sent home a couple to pave our backyard,
When this terrible war comes to an end
To beg Belgium's pardon the Kaiser will bend
The whole British Empire has proved itself true
And stood by the allies to see the thing through.

Attitude In Taghmon

There was considerable support for the war effort in Taghmon. While the educated and Anglo-Irish classes usually supplied the officers, those who joined up, on a whim, as a result of intensive recruitment were in the majority and were usually from the socially deprived classes. As a result they enjoyed the unusual status of being regular income earners and this made an enormous difference to the standard of living of their families. A report in 'The Free Press' describes how 'Taghmon renders substantial assistance to the Wexford Soldiers and Sailors Comfort Fund'. It gives details of donations to the fund by 90 local people and included such items as rolls of butter, sacks of potatoes, chickens, cigarettes, bottles of wine, knitted socks and cushions provided by the Mercy Convent, Wexford.

In 1917, the year after the Easter Rebellion and the executions which followed, support among the local populace seems, on the surface at least, not to have waned. 'The Free Press' of February 24th describes a visit to Taghmon by the Irish Guards band -
'On Friday last the pipes and drums of the Irish Guards visited Taghmon, where they were made most welcome by all assembled for the local fair, and delighted the audience by their fine playing of jigs and reels.'
They were touring Ireland in the interests of recruiting.

(The reality of course was that the large numbers of recruits from the area widened the growing chasm between two distinct groups – those who supported the status quo and those who wanted change. The aftermath of the Easter Rebellion of 1916 had made a huge impression and, in Taghmon, a number of families had become involved in the Gaelic League and the growth of Irish Nationalism and Irish identity. These activities, which would see a number of Taghmon men and women take up arms on the Republican side in the War of Independence, conflicted greatly with those who supported the Redmond line 'to fight for the freedom of small nations'. The Parles, the Creanes, the Williams's, the Boggans of Growtown, Paddy Monaghan of Tottenham Green, the Ryans of Tomcoole and a small number of other local families became active in the fight for independence and a few other locals sympathised with the ideals of republicanism. Their attitudes did not meet with the general approval of the majority of the population of the area and particularly not with the Rev. Wm. Fortune P.P. who was known to refuse Holy Communion to those he suspected of Republican activities. )

And Josie and John Condon knew Leinster up and down,
They walked the roads of Ireland through counties, one by one,
And they drove them in their thousands from the Fairday in Taghmon.

Conclusion

In the years after independence, the tens of thousands of Irishmen who fought and died in the 'Great War' were considered by many to have been at best, misguided and at worst, traitors to their country. To support the actions of those who had enlisted, in the climate of the new Free State was, at the time, 'politically incorrect'

Now, however things are changing and this is reflected in the words of President McAleese, speaking at the inauguration of the Messines Peace Tower in Belgium.

'Those whom we commemorate here were doubly tragic. They fell victim to a war against oppression in Europe. Their memory too fell victim to a war for independence at home in Ireland'.

Ireland has changed dramatically in recent years. It is now a modern, confident and outward looking society with respect and understanding for different traditions and cultures on this island. It is in this climate that it has been possible to remember and understand why so many men were prepared to leave these shores and fight on foreign fields. President McAleese quoted the words of Sean Lemass from about 30 years ago, during her speech

'In later years it was common - and I was also guilty in this respect - to question the motives of those who joined the new British armies at the outbreak of the war, but it must in their honour and in fairness to their memory, be said, that they were motivated by the highest purpose.'

REFERENCES AND NOTES

  1. The numbers quoted concerning Irish participants in the First World War are continually subject to gross inaccuracy. The leading authority on the subject is Professor David Fitzpatrick of Trinity College, Dublin. He gives the total number of male Irish participants as 206,000. He concludes that 'about 30,000 died'. Statistics of the Irish dead numbering 'more than 50,000' (The Irish Times), 'upwards of 35,000 (The London Times) and '55,000' (The Daily Telegraph) are therefore inaccurate.
