Podcast: Restoring The Disabled To Usefulness by Des Marnane

During the First World War, Tipperary Military Barracks had two very different roles. In 1914-15, the 49th Brigade was trained there for service on the Western Front. Then, from 1916, Tipperary was a place where efforts were made to undo the damage of war, when for several years; Tipperary Military Barracks was a centre for the recuperation and rehabilitation of wounded soldiers.
Des returns to the Tipperary People and Places Series for his eighth lecture. His name is instantly recognisable in the world of Local History and Studies in Tipperary, being an annual contributor to the Tipperary Historical Journal and author of numerous publications, the most recent being The first hundred: talks on Tipperary’s history, as broadcast on Tipperary’s Mid West Radio (2011-2013).
