PLATO EBR Louth Group Goes to War?

27 June 2016

The PLATO EBR Louth grouping held their June meeting at the Irish Military War Museum outside Collon, County Meath. The venture is headed up by William Sullivan, a Louth Group member. The Irish Military War Museum (IMWM) is a living history museum and family park covering 5,000 square feet of floor space, will represent a distinctly non-political but ‘must see’ educational and historical resource for people of all ages and from right across the island of Ireland and beyond. Given the  recent climate of Brexit and the previously highly strained relationship between Britain and Ireland down through the centuries, the museum will explain the complex political background behind why 210,000 Irishmen from both traditions fought in the mud sodden trenches of France, Flanders and the Dardanelles during World War One as rebellion tensions erupted back in Ireland.

Pictured at the Museum are some members of the PLATO EBR Group with William Sullivan (Far Right).

 

The Museum houses one of the finest collections of WW2 Allied and Axis vehicles and deactivated weapons ever assembled in Ireland and replicates life-size trenches. The park will contain a petting zoo, zorbing, ziplines and clay pigeon shooting by laser. IMWM's director William Sullivan has successfully transformed 20 acres of farmland into a military war museum and park. A sure must do with the kids this summer!
