Template:Infobox British WWI division

The 16th (Irish) Division was a division of the New Army, raised in Ireland from the Irish National Volunteers in September 1914 as part of the K2 Army Group. The division moved to France, joining the British Expeditionary Force (BEF), in December 1915 and spent the duration of the First World War in action on the Western Front. The division required a substantial refit in England between June and August 1918 which involved the introduction of many non-Irish battalions.
