In the first of the Paper Trail Pro Podcasts, author Ciarán MacAirt discusses World Wars and Local Memories.
This personal journey finds him trudging from the killing fields of World War 1 to the back-streets of Belfast where death-squads roamed.
He discusses his work with the McGurk’s Bar campaign and his family’s service in British Army uniform.
But he first introduces the work of the charity, Paper Trail, and the project funded by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB), and Victims and Survivors Service.
This podcast is based mainly on the author’s article written on the 100th anniversary of the death of his great, great uncle at the Battle of Neuve Chapelle in March 1915 – In Memoriam: Rifleman Robert Arthurs
