Visit Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland's six counties of Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry, and Tyrone are full of historic sites. Many of these date to the 1940s reflecting the change in the country during World War Two.
During World War Two, Co. Antrim in Northern Ireland played host to RAF and USAAF airfields, evacuee camps, and bases and training grounds for American GIs.
Co. Armagh was a hive of activity in the Second World War. Thousands of American GIs passed through the Orchard County from bases such as Brownlow House.
Every branch of the military saw action in Co. Down during the Second World War from US Forces and General Eisenhower in Bangor to the RAF at Ballyhalbert.
County Fermanagh in the province of Ulster is one of the six counties that make up Northern Ireland. It covers an area of around 1,691 square kilometres.
County Londonderry in the province of Ulster is one of the six counties that make up Northern Ireland. It covers an area of 2,074 square kilometres.
