No Irishman deserves to be remembered more than that most courageous Jesuit Chaplain, Father Willie Doyle. While Doyle was revered by the troops of his own 16th (Irish) Division he was also, counter-intuitively, highly respected in the ranks of units like the loyalist 36th (Ulster) Division, many of them Belfast working-class Protestants. Doyle was seen by Irish troops, Roman Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter, to put his life on the line on a daily basis in offering comfort, consolation and philosophical reassurance to anyone who required it. He was to pay the ultimate price of his resolve and his compassion.
