My name is Grainne McGrath, I am 17 years old and a student at St Catherine's College.
One student will each represent a soldier from their own county. I am representing my County, Armagh, in this once in a lifetime opportunity. My soldier is William McBride and I will also have the privilege of visiting his grave in France.
Our first meeting as a whole group was in March of this year, in Collin's Barracks. We discussed each of our soldiers within our provinces, explaining to each other the background information and what we have learned.
Throughout the trip we will visit the graves of many of the fallen soldiers, the trenches and war zones the fought in and also we will visit the European Parliament in Brussels.
