Memorial unveiled to the Irish who died at Passchendaele

Description:
A new memorial to the Irish who fought at Passchendaele and to the Jesuit priest and army chaplain Fr Willie Doyle SJ has been unveiled. UK ambassador to Belgium Alison Rose and the Irish representative to Nato based in Belgium were among the attendees. An ornamental signpost showing the way to the four provinces of Ireland, Dublin, Belfast and Tipperary has been erected in the village of Frezenberg outside Ypres in Belgium. The signpost is the third of three. The others commemorate the Scottish and Welsh involvement at Passchendaele. At the same time a blue plaque was unveiled in memory of Fr Doyle who went missing in action on August 16th, 1917 during a phase of the Battle of Passchendaele known as the Battle of Langemarck.
