Trip to Somme Heritage Centre

06 December 2008

The Ballymena Community History Partnership in conjunction with the Mid-Antrim Museums Service are excited to announce a day trip to the Somme Heritage Centre on Saturday 6th December.

The centre examines Ireland's role in the Great War with special reference to the cross-community involvement in the 3 local volunteer Divisions: the 36th (Ulster) Divsion and the 10th and 16th (Irish) Divisions. Guided tours bring the visitor back in time to 1910 where they learn about the Home Rule Crisis, recruiting and training of men and life in the trenches. Highlights include reconstructed trenches of the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

Bookings are now being taken.
