Inscriptions & Imagery

Colourful, framed roll of honour by Walter Till 1920.

Royal crest at top with motto Dieu Et Mon Droit.

Main title: Roll of Honour of the Clontarf Cricket & Football Clubs. Side title: European War 1914-1919.

Victory laurels hang from a Union flag and Irish Harp & Crown flag.

Background scene of the club house and sheep grazing the empty playing fields. The clubs closed because most of their membership had enlisted and the grounds were used for agricultural purposes as part of the war-time food economy.

Many members initially joined the famous "D" Company, 7th Royal Dublin Fusiliers. In some cases, the person's unit is listed as RDF even though the person was transferred as an officer to another unit. This may signify the attachment felt by this group of Pals to their first unit.

Names of members, and probably ex-members, who served.

One hundred and twenty-nine members are listed alphabetically by surname in two columns, with initials and unit.


24 casualties, with details of surname, initial, and unit. Ordered by surname. Casualties are denoted with a red mark and represent nearly 20% of those who joined up.
