This project aims to list the names of as many as possible of the one million children who are dead because of the Middle East related wars. It is at the early stages, so the names listed below are just a tiny fraction of the names of all those children who have died.

May all of these children rest in peace.

Who we are

This project has been undertaken by members of Shannonwatch and Connemara Peace Group. Our aim is to involve Irish children in the act of remembrance, thereby raising awareness in our young people of the real impact of war.


Remembering and naming the lost children.

Up to one million children have been killed or have died as a result of the series of wars across the Middle East and North Africa since the first Gulf War in 1991. The Western allies, including NATO, bear a major share of responsibility for initiating these wars, and the United Nations and the so-called International Community bears the major share of responsibility for the failures to prevent these wars, and the failures to make peace after the wars had begun.

Ireland has contributed substantially to these wars of aggression by allowing US military to transit through Shannon airport since October 2001.

About 3 million armed US troops, have transited through Shannon airport since 2001. A huge number of US military aircraft and civilian aircraft chartered to the US military have also refuelled at Shannon. We need to be asking questions about what thoseĀ planes are carrying.

Are we inĀ Ireland directly complicit in the deaths of all those children listed here?



Get Involved

We are currently seeking schools and community groups to contribute to this process of remembering. Each child’s name will be written on a white ribbon and tied to a fence or a tree, or to some prominent location in a community.
