"It's a long, long way to Tipperary..."


19-01-2015 19:00

Popular among soldiers in the First World War, "It’s a long, long way to Tipperary..." is remembered as a song of that war. Historian Turtle Bunbury, author of The Glorious Madness, explains its origins in our video-blog.

 

 

The Glorious Madness. Tales of the Irish and the Great War by one of Ireland’s most popular historians, Turtle Bunbury.

From tragic generals to nuns on the run – the extraordinary stories of the Irish on the frontlines of the First World War that you’ve never heard before.

Based on first-hand accounts of the First World War, The Glorious Madness is a collection of character portraits and stirring anecdotes that brings to life the hopes, fears and ambitions that defined the generation of Irish men and women lost to the catastrophe of the first great modern war.
