Throughout Ireland and for the foreseeable future, the Military Heritage of Ireland Trust (CLG):
- Honours all Irish men and women who served in armed forces irrespective of the Theatre of Operations, National Flag or Regimental Colour;
- Supports the widest understanding and appreciation of Irish military heritage;
- Encourages research and the study of the Irish Soldier in military history; and
- Sustains partnerships with relevant stakeholders;
- in order to promote and preserve Ireland’s unique military heritage for future generations.
Fully understanding the diversity of Irish military service worldwide, we see the Trust as a recognised, effective and open-minded provider, committed to honouring Ireland’s commendable military heritage, in an inclusive cross-border environment and in partnership.
In the short to medium term, the Military Heritage Trust of Ireland will focus on key measurable outputs such as the publication of a strategic framework, the establishment of a Room of Reflection, active involvement in the Decade of Centenaries, enhancing partnerships with stakeholders such as Museums and Regimental Associations, increasing student’s involvement in the Military Heritage Annual Award, extending its Membership base, and through a redesigned Web Site, promulgate the latest news and lists of events, and further develop the support provided for research.
