Tuesday 09th Dec 2014 - 90th Anniversary of the Army Nursing Service.

The 90th Anniversary of the formal establishment of the Army Nursing Service will be commemorated on Tuesday the 09th December 2014 with the launch of a Commemorative Booklet in the Curragh museum at 12 o'clock.

In 1922, the Army Nursing Service was initiated to take over Military Hospitals on behalf of the emerging Irish State from the withdrawing British military. The service continued on an ad hoc basis through 1922 and '23 until it was formally established in 1924 within the overall establishment of Óglaigh na hÉireann.
