We were delighted with the launch of 
Forgotten Fallen
by James Langton

James Langton's long-awaited 'The Forgotten Fallen' was launched on Friday 29 November in Cathal Brugha Barracks before a huge attendance. The book was launched by Cmmdnt. Daniel Ayiotis, Officer in Charge of the Military Archives, who made an excellent speech in which he touched on the difficulties of recording and commenting on the Irish Civil War and seeing past the actions of both sides to the core truths of the time. You can read this speech in full here.

James Langton outlined his research into the book, and thanked all who had helped in any way, while Mícheál Ó Doibhilín thanked those who had facilitated the launch, in particular Lt. Col. Sean O'Farrell, O/C 7th Battalion and of Cathal Brugha Barracks, the staff of the Michael Collins Club/Privates' Mess. and a special word of thanks to Ronnie Daly.
He pointed out that "The Forgotten Fallen" is the largest undertaking to date by Kilmainham Tales Teo., but one that met almost all the criteria the company seeks in each publication - a new story, essential information, readable - but is by far the biggest book they have produced to date. 
Also on the night, members of the Collins 22 Society, of which James is a member, presented a beautiful pencil portrait of General Michael Collins to the Michael Collins Club.
