In 1914 Ireland was a naval backwater with only one base of any size. However, by the end of WWI, there were 18 naval bases operated by thousands of personnel, hundreds of ships of all sizes and dozens of aircraft. Ireland had become a crucial theatre of the war, fundamental in winning the campaign to defeat the German U-boats.
