From this page and the More Info page members you can access information about the 90th anniversary of the battles of Messines, Wytschaete and Passchendaele that took place during WW1 in Belgium. The History page provides an overview of the involvement of the 2/Leinsters and the 7/Leinsters in the battle of Messines.

The anniversary is being commemorated in a joint effort coordinated by the three communities of Zonnebeke, Heuvalland and Messines that are situated on the West Flemish ridge in Belgium.

The events that primarily involved the Irish Divisions are associated with the Battle of Messines and Wytschaete and a summary program can be downloaded as a PDF file (27kb) here.

Other events connected with new museums in July and the Scots Regiments August take place also have summary pages.
