How do you communicate the scale of Limerick’s loss during World War One? This was one of the most traumatic events in Limerick’s recent history, over 1,000 violent deaths which occurred out of sight of relatives and friends. We have sought to visually represent the scale of the death toll through a series of interactive maps.
The map below shows the location where each Limerick casualty during WW1 is commemorated. Click on the placemark to identify the casualty. Each placemark is colour coded by age. We have generated individual GPS coordinates for every casualty. These coordinates are not the exact location of their plaque but are instead close to the commemoration site, giving each its own space.
