Long Business Description

Elements of the battlefields of the War are reconstructed in a multi-media exhibition and the political background to pre war Ireland is illustrated through the use of material from the Irish and Ulster Volunteers.

There is a database of Irish fatalities of the Great War for those wishing to trace details of relatives. The Somme Association, which coordinates research into Ireland ’s part in the First World War, is based at the Centre.
