ENNISKILLEN GREAT WAR DEAD
The unveiling and dedication ceremony.
Viscount FitzAlan of Derwent, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland arrived in Enniskillen accompanied by his wife the Viscountess FitzAlan and the Prime Minister of Northern Ireland (Sir James Craig, Bart.) to receive an enthusiastic welcome, the town being en fete. Addressing a great crowd at the memorial, the Viscount referred to the undying fame of the Inniskilling regiments, the local assistance rendered to the men at the front, and the need for recognising all such efforts by the restoration of peace in Ireland.
The memorial has been erected near the centre of the town, at a cost of £1,600. It takes the form of a monument of light coloured freestone, 20 feet high, surmounted by the figure in bronze of a private soldier, wearing his war kit and leaning on his rifle in an attitude of reverence. The steps at the base are fitted with heavy black chains supported by small white pillars. On one side is the inscription, under the coat of arms; “Inniskilling – Our Glorious dead, 1914 – 1918.” The other sides contain the names of 650 Fermanagh soldiers who were killed. These represent practically every unit of his Majesty’s service, but over 50 per cent. of the names recorded are those of men who served in different battalions of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers.
Their Excellencies were accompanied by the Prime Minister of Northern Ireland Sir James Craig and Lady Craig. The Right Hon., Sir Dawson Bates, Minister of Home Affairs; the Right Hon., E. M. Archdale, Minister of Agriculture; and Mr. J. Porter-Porter, D.L. They arrived at Enniskillen Railway Station shortly after 12-15p.m. The train and the station were decorated with flags. Mr. John E. Collum, H.M.L.; the Hon. Cecil Lowry Corry, High Sheriff, awaited the arrival of the distinguished visitors.
Mr. McCollum introduced to his Excellency Mr. G. W. Whaley, chairman of the Urban Council, and Mr. A. W. G. Ritchie, M.A., town clerk; and Mr Whaley in turn introduced the members of the council. There were also introduced to his Excellency-Viscount Cole, D.L; Colonel J. B. Archdale, D.L.,; Colonel Barton, D.L.; Sir Basil Brooke, Bart. D.L.; Mr Stuart Verschoyle, D.L.; Colonel J. A. Richardson, D.L.; Mr George Massey Beresford, D.L.; Major J. G. C. Irvine, D.L.; Major W. R. Nixon, D.L.; Mr. J. N. Carson (ex-High Sheriff); Mr. C. E. R. A. Irvine (Crown Solicitor), Mr. W. H. West, J.P.; (secretary County Council) and secretary to the Memorial Committee); Mr. J. P. Burkitt (county surveyor); Mr. James Donnelly (borough surveyor) and County-Inspector Gerrity.
The Town Clerk read the following address of welcome, “May it please your Excellency, we. The Urban District council of Enniskillen, desire to take advantage of your Excellency’s visit to this portion of Northern Ireland to renew our expression of loyalty and devotion to the Throne and the Constitution of these realms.”
“It is just eighteen years since the Council had the honour of paying respect to his Majesty’s direct representatives in Ireland, the occasion being the unveiling by Lord Dudley of the monument to the gallant men of the Inniskillings, horse and foot, who laid down their lives in the war in South Africa.”
As in that war, so in the Great War, the unflinching courage and unconquering spirit of Fermanagh men, not alone in the Inniskilling Regiments, but also in the many other branches of hi Majesty’s forces in which they served, earned for them undying glory; the names of the men emblazoned on the memorial which your Excellency will today unveil will live for ever in our hearts and memories.”
“As citizens of this ancient Ulster town, whose sons have never been found wanting when the hour of danger summoned them to the service of the Empire, we respectfully give your Excellency welcome.”
“Signed on behalf of the Urban District Council of Enniskillen; George Whaley, chairman; A. W. G. Ritchie, Town Clerk.
His Excellency, who on uncovering was received with loud cheers, said, “I thank you on behalf of his Most Gracious Majesty the King for your assurance of loyalty and devotion. When the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland last came to Enniskillen he came as your address has reminded me, to praise the memory of soldiers fallen in the South African war. I am proud to have been invited this morning to take part with you in commemorating these later sons of Fermanagh who have fallen in a yet more dreadful conflict, and testify by their deaths to the gallant devotion of their race. I am honoured to have received on the threshold of that commemoration this generous welcome from your ancient and historic town.
The Viceroy, having inspected the guard of honour posted outside the station, consisting of 100 men of the “A” class Special Constabulary under the command of Captain Littledale, D.L., Lieutenant Burnside, D.L., and Captain Armstrong, D.L., motored to the site of the memorial in Belmore Street, the route to which was lined by constabulary, who gave the Royal salute. On his arrival he was received with cheers by a large concourse of people, and the band of the 1st. Lincoln struck up the National Anthem. Accompanied by Sir James Craig and Mr. Collum, his Excellency saluted the colours, and inspected the guard of honour composed of the 1st Lincolns, and the Enniskillen troop of Boy Scouts, under Scoutmaster Montgomery Barnes.
Mr. Collum said it was his mournful privilege on behalf of the people of Fermanagh, to ask his Excellency to unveil that memorial, erected as a token of their regard and respect, to perpetuate the memory of the men whose names were inscribed thereon. In addition to that number, there were the names of 901 disabled men on the war pensions books from Enniskillen. Taking these together, his Excellency would see that Enniskillen had done her part as much as, if not more than most of the communities of Ireland. The County Council of Fermanagh had not rested upon the erection of memorials, but had started, under the Ministry of Labour, a school at the County Hall, in which eighty-five men were being trained in rural handicrafts to enable them to start again in civil life.
His Excellency having unveiled the memorial the guard presented arms, and the buglers sounded the “Last Post” which was followed by the “Reveille.”
Lord FitzAlan, addressing the assemblage, then said-“ I esteem it a great privilege to stand here today as the representative of the King, and to be allowed to take part in this ceremony. What we are doing here today is no new thing for Fermanagh. You have always borne in mind the memory of those who have made the great sacrifice for King and country. More than a hundred years ago you remembered those who had fallen in the Peninsula War. Some eighteen years back you erected a monument in memory of those who had fallen in the South African war and now, today after the greatest and most terrible war in history of the word, you have come forward to perpetuate the glorious memory of the 650 sons of the county who have bestowed renewed renown on the name of Fermanagh, and added to that long list of honours so splendidly won by the Inniskilling regiments, horse and foot-the Inniskilling Dragoons and the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers-two splendid regiments with a history going back to more than 200 years ago, whose names are honoured throughout the British Army. I am glad to know, too, of the good work that was done here in the early days of the war by Mr. Collum, his Majesty’s Lieutenant of the County; Major Falls, Capt., Wray, and others, who came forward and assisted them in ensuring that recruiting for these regiments were kept up, and added strength to those who wanted their help out at the front. I believe there are here today relatives of those who fell. I ask them to know that we do not forget them. I know well the sorrow and the grief to the stricken mother, the widow, and the orphan child. But I suggest to them that, after all, though even time cannot diminish the sense of loss, there is on an occasion like this what is their right due and that is a feeling, a just feeling, of solemn pride in the intimate and sacred relationship with these heroes whose names are inscribed on these monuments. The great war was fought to destroy militarism and to endeavour to secure peace for the world. Is there not in this something for us to think about? I suggest to you that if we are to do fitting honour to these heroes, then it is incumbent on every man and every women to do his and her best in their memory, to see to it that strife, turmoil and disturbances ends in this country, and once again, as I hope, and as I see signs of happiness is restored to its families and its homes, and a lasting peace. (Applause)
The Chairman of the Urban Council, proposing a vote of thanks to his Excellency, said as his Majesty’s direct representative in Ireland Viscount FitzAlan had conferred a singular honour upon them in coming so long a journey to join in their proceedings, and thereby adding that grace and dignity so requisite to a ceremony which and for its object the honouring of their gallant dead. It was needless that he should dwell upon the pride the Fermanagh people in the part their and women too, played in the Great War and in the truly noble way in which they responded to their country’s call in the hour of danger. As the war progressed it became apparent that in the midst of all its horrors they were covering themselves with glory, and as they were ready to fight so were they ready to die in the ???????? of right. The memorial would served to remind them and future generations of Fermanagh men of the deep debt of gratitude they owed to the brave ones whose names were inscribed thereon for their noble self-sacrifice and for the valour and patriotic spirit displayed by them with the many different units in which they served. He would specially mention their own two local regiments, which never yet had been found wanting when duty called (Applause)
Hon. C. L. Corry, in seconding, said they were under a deep debt of gratitude to his Excellency and also Lady FitzAlan for coming specially from England to take part in that ceremony. (Applause)
The motion was passed by acclamation and the troops again gave the Royal salute while the band played the National Anthem.
A large number of beautiful wreaths were placed at the foot of the memorial, some by representatives of the military and constabulary and others by relatives of the deceased soldiers.
The Viceroy and his party drove through densely-packed and decorated streets to the town Hall, where they were entertained at luncheon, at which over a hundred other guests were present. Mr. Collum presided, and to his right were the Lord Lieutenant, Lady Craig, The Right Hon., E. M. Archdale. Lady Muddock, Viscount Cole, Lady D. Corry, Lieut-Colonel Archdale, Mrs A. Todd, Mrs J. Porter-Porter and Mrs W. H. Barton. To the chairman’s left there were Lady FitzAlan, Hon. Cecil Corry, Mrs Collum, Sir James Craig, Lady W. Corry, Sir S. Maddock, Mrs. H. Richardson, the Lord Bishop of Kilmore , Mrs J. G. Irvine, and Sir Basil Brooke.
The toast of “The King” was cordially honoured, as was also the health of his Excellency.
Viscount FitzAlan, in responding, said he could assure them that it was a real pleasure for him to be able to come there, and represent the King at the great event which had taken place that morning. Anyone who had the privilege of taking part in a ceremony of that kind must not only feel the solemnity of it, but must recall to himself or herself all that the British Empire had gone through in recent years. Never before in the history of the world had there been known such a terrible crisis as they had passed through. Since it had been his duty to hold the office which by the King’s wishes he now held this had been an anxious thought-whether the real lessons of the war were been learned and felt in this country. Happily he thought they might now begin to have some hope. (Applause) He felt that he could really congratulate them on the great improvement which had taken place, in that locality, at any rate, during recent times; and he thought they had every reason to be encouraged by it and by the feeling that at last the dawn was coming near, and they might have peace. Prosperity, and happiness in the not far distant future, (Applause)
The Chairman said they had with them a friend who had come in no political spirit, but as the host of his Excellency, to pay his respects to the fallen heroes, he referred to Sir James Craig. (Applause)
The Prime Minister, who was received with applause, said he had been asked to propose that they should drink in solemn silence to the memory of the fallen heroes of Fermanagh. He had thought, coming down in the train, how it would be possible for any man to add anything to the feelings, thoughts, and words to which expression had already been given towards those who had fallen in the great war, and he had come to the conclusion that there were so deeply rooted in their hearts fond memories of all who had made the supreme sacrifice that it was unnecessary for him to do more than express how gladly he associated himself with his Excellency in the ceremony of that morning and once more visited his kind friends in North Fermanagh. (Applause)
The toast was honoured in silence, and the proceedings afterwards terminated.

Fermanagh War Memorial, background information.
The Site and the Design.
A meeting of the subscribers to the Fermanagh War Memorial was held in the Townhall, Enniskillen, on Tuesday, Mr. John H. Collum, H.M.L., in the chair. Two designs had been selected by the Committee out of all those submitted to them, and these were placed before the meeting for their final selection.
After consideration it was resolved to select the design submitted by Messrs. Gafflin of the Carrara Marble Works, London. This shows the pedestal to be of white Portland stone, reached by three steps, the whole surmounted by a handsome bronze statue (6ft. 1ins high) of a soldier of the war in full uniform, with reversed arms, – the whole being from 19 to 20 feet.
The site was next considered, and after deliberation the meeting came to the conclusion that the best site would be in the centre of Belmore Street near the East Bridge, and that permission be asked from the Urban Council for this purpose. While there is ample room for two streams of traffic at this point on each side of the proposed site, owing to the exceptional width of the roadway at this point, the probability is that the directions will be given that the traffic will be directed to keep on each side, so as to provide for the public safety; and in this respect the memorial will prove a benefit to the public, as the taking short cuts by vehicles across this broad part of the road at the present time invites danger. In all probability a handsome railing will enclose the monument, and perhaps two side lights placed there also.
