At 11am on Remembrance Sunday our group was gathering at the entrance to Glasnevin cemetery in Dublin for a tour of graves. One of the first I noticed was the memorial to Irishmen who had served as British soldiers in the Great War and the Second World War. The monument had been restored in 2011 by the Commonwealth Graves Commission. The Royal British Legion had placed a wreath there and on Monday there will be special ceremonies taking place on the 11th hour of the 11th day of November, with a number of VIPs expected to attend.
