In 1916, the Church of Ireland Gazette wartime correspondent and editor, Ware B. Wells, was ‘probably at closer quarters with much of the fighting in the capital than any other civilian in Dublin‘, getting ‘access to special sources of information … to supply a lengthy and exhaustive analysis of the circumstances of the insurrection‘.

In September 1915, the Gazette started a weekly “Roll of Honour of Clergy”  which sought to illustrate the military service of clerical families, through publication of a series of portraits with accompanying biographical sketches of the sons, or near relations of Irish clergy who were either ‘bearing arms’, or had already ‘laid down their lives in their country’s cause’.
A sample of these portraits may be viewed by clicking here.
