Somme Heritage Centre 12/9/15

On Saturday 12th September the group attended an educational trip to the Somme Centre, Newtownards. We received a guided tour followed by lunch.

The Somme Museum, a charity and registered museum, opened in 1994 as an educational facility and tourist attraction examining Ireland’s role in the Great War with special reference to local cross-community involvement in the three volunteer divisions raised in Ireland: the 10th and the 16th (Irish) divisions and the 36th (Ulster) Division.
