Somme Heritage Centre

Opened in 1994 as a tourist attraction and educational facility. The Centre examines Ireland's role in the First World War with special reference to local cross community involvement in the three volunteer divisions raised in Ireland: the 10th and 16th (Irish) Divisions and the 36th (Ulster) Division. These units comprised volunteers from both religions and traditions, Protestant and Catholic, Unionist and Nationalist.
