Christmas 1914 (WW1 Truce)

Jerry Lynch (a Clare man) sings a very moving song, telling of a glimpse of peace during WW1.  It took place over the Christmas days of 1914 and gave some comfort to soldiers on both sides.  I came across this site, giving details of the time in question http://www.kinnethmont.co.uk/1914-1918_files/xmas-truce.htm

Let us pray for a peace, worldwide and at home, that will endure.  Amen!

  1. Lovely song, great singer. Had heard the song before sometime, but probably never really “listened” to the words and didn’t know the story behind it. Thanks for sharing it.
    Keep well.
    Regards
    Freddie.
