having visited these places a number of times, inc once in secondary school, in late 80′s and again in when i was back in college in 2005, I would highly recommend a visit, it was for me, both a humbling experience and an eye opener. Forget current politics and see what our citizens went thru. The Tower has the names of every Irish solider whom died in this war. When we visited in 2005 as part of our degree we were the 1st Irish university to lay a wreath at the Menin Gate in Ypres. Although I had no ancestors killed in this war, that i know of, it was a very moving experience.
