THE names ring out - Cpl Myles Reilly, James Flanagan, John McKenny, Thomas Mackin, Richard Freeman, James Quinn, John James Clarke - they just go on and one, dozens of them.
They are names from the past, men from Ardee and district who went off to fight in World War I and never returned.
They are recalled each year in November at a special memorial service at the war memorial at the Fair Green, Ardee.
This year, that event takes place on Saturday November 18th at 11am.
The Cathaoirleach of Louth CC, Togher man Colm Markey will attended on the day, accompanied by Mairead McGuinness MEP.
Fintan Malone says it is an important day for many local people who remember those that died and also those that returned home from the conflict and are no longer with us.
The community is welcome to come along for 11am and enjoy a short service before a wreath laying ceremony takes place.
‘This is the fourth such ceremony we have held since the memorial was erected in 2014,’ Fintan remarked.
