Letters to the Editor

I was very sorry to see that Irish WWII veteran Tommy Meehan had passed away at the age of 93, and while I never knew him personally, I feel we all owe so much to these men who gave so much for the freedom we enjoy today.

My father, Thomas Lucas from Baltinglass, Co Wicklow, is also an RAF WWII veteran who took part in the invasion of Normandy in 1944.

Originally from Fenagh in Co Carlow, he joined the Royal Air Force at the height of WWII in 1943.
