Greenfinch 50th Anniversary


To mark the 50th Anniversary of the formation of the Greenfinches, the archives and collection of The Royal Irish Regiment have been at the heart of a project to highlight the experiences of those females who served in Northern Ireland. Researchers Dr Hannah West and Hannah Richards, from Cardiff University have been instrumental in bringing these fascinating stories to light, the objects and documents enhanced by first hand accounts from those who were there.

These stories have been brought together in an online exhibition designed by Nifty Fox Creative, 2023. Just click the link below to see the exhibition.
