Somme Association - Advisory Committee

Description

The Somme Association: Following the refurbishment of the Ulster Memorial Tower and construction of the Visitor Centre on the Somme battlefield in the early 1990’s the Somme Association was founded to manage both of these sites.

The Somme Association also carries out research into the part played by Ireland in the First World War, and helps to perpetuate the memory of all Irish soldiers and those who served in Irish regiments during the Great War.

The Somme Association is based at a museum called the Somme Heritage Centre in Newtownards, Northern Ireland.
