World War I Battlefields

Visiting the World War battlefields, learning about solider experiences and observing the monuments that pay tribute to those who fought is a thought-provoking experience that will boost student interest and deepen their understanding of European history.

During the Great War 230,000 Irishmen volunteered for service in the British Army. The Ypres Salient and the Somme bear testimony to these men and many thousands of Irish graves and memorials here remember these Irish soldiers, 50,000 of whom were killed.
