This board is for those of you who just want to leave a message or create a topic or just have a laugh and carry on.

Please note that a certain amount of banter, slagging and
simulated swearing will be allowed which would not be considered out of order in any Glesga pub any night of the week...ex-Pat's
beware this is the Glesga of today not yesteryear.

However, if anyone tends to be constantly nasty and rude to people or whinging on their posts their membership will be removed. I do not have the time nor the Wisdom of Solomon or patience of a Saint to feck about wi' dafties. Zero Tolerance of numpties is the order of the day...you have been warned. Have a nice day or else!!!

The Great War of 1914-18 saw the Irish soldier make his greatest sacrifice on Britain's behalf. Nearly 135,000 Irishmen volunteered (conscription was never applied in Ireland) in addition to the 50,000 Irish who were serving with the regular army and the reserves on 4th August 1914. Within weeks of the outbreak of war no less than three Irish Divisions _ the 10th (Irish), the 16th (Irish) and 36th(Ulster) Division _ were formd from Irishmen , Catholic and Protestant, who responded to Kitchener's 'Call To Arms'.An estimated 35,000 Irish-born soldiers were killed before the Armistice came in November 1918. This is their story...
