Re­mem­ber­ing their sac­ri­fice

Irish Daily Mirror - - STATESIDE -

JOHN Con­don is said to be the youngest Al­lied sol­dier killed in ac­tion dur­ing World War One.

The 13-year-old was one of the 49,500 Ir­ish­men who lost their lives on the bat­tle­field.

As we mark a cen­tury since the end of the con­flict, it’s im­por­tant to note left as much a mark here, as it did to ev­ery coun­try which took part.

John Con­don can rest in peace know­ing that he is as much of a hero as any of the brave men ly­ing along­side him in that for­eign field.

To­mor­row, we should all take a minute to re­mem­ber the sac­ri­fices that he, and mil­lions like him, made.
