    Have a look at Willie Redmond's last days at the Battle of Messines in a graphic novel (comic to you and me) from Creative Centenaries, that we've been featuring at our WWIreland exhibition. Willie was killed in June 1917. There seem to be a few photos of him in the Poole Collection dated March 1918. Perhaps they were earlier ones taken in the Poole Studio that were reproduced in March because John Redmond (Willie's brother) died in March 1918?

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Wikipedia has William Redmond (1886–1932) When his father died in March 1918, William Archer Redmond resigned his Tyrone seat and successfully defended his father's seat of Waterford at the subsequent by-election. Famously he campaigned in his army uniform and wearing a black armband. catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000720859

    Fine photograph. Willie Redmond was a good man who championed many difficult causes. He was involved in helping in the release of an Aran Islander, Bryan Kilmartin, in 1884 after a wrongful conviction. www.aboutaran.com/2017/02/the-wrongful-imprisonment-of-br...

    Extremely interesting, and not a photo I've seen before. The Redmond's are almost like a Greek tragedy - their whole world came crashing down around them, and they helped pull it down and died with their values. And WWI was just an epic waste of life, little more than a grotesque family feud, except the families were royals and their followers were in the millions, and their bullets were in the billions. Way more Irish people died getting freedom the Redmond way than ever died in the rebellions, revolution or the civil war. Mad stuff!
