Battle of the Somme

On the 1st July 2016 the Library will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme by holding an exhibition. We will be marking the centenary by remembering the huge sacrifice made by Irish countrymen who fought and died in that truly horrific battle. This battle was one of the worst of the whole war; on the first day alone the 1st July 1916 the British Army lost 60,000 men, of whom 20,000 were killed, many from Donegal. By the end of the battle, November 1916, the Somme had claimed the lives of over 1.2 million soldiers from both the German and allied forces.


Students will be fined for overdue books. More Information For comprehensive information on all our services please call into the library and collect a copy of the library guide or ask at the information desk.
