Topic: American Soldiers stationed in Northern Ireland, 1943-44


I am a historian. I want to trace the name of a unit (American unit) which was billeted in the grounds of a Catholic Seminary, near Newry, Northern Ireland, during 1943-1944 - in preparation for the invasion of mainland Europe. Is there any website or forum which can help? Where should I seek information.

That is a fairly vague question. The 2nd Infantry Division was in and around Newry, you may want to start there.
