A garden to remember the Irish fighting…

The Garden of Remembrance was designed by architect Dáithí Hanly and inaugurated in 1966 by President Éamon de Valera on the 50th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.

The garden celebrates Ireland’s past, commemorating the victims of the various battles that helped Ireland reach its current geopolitical status. Among its battles are:

  • the revolts of 1798 and 1803,
  • the revolt of the Irish youth,
  • the Fenian rising in the 1860s..
  • and the 1916 Easter rising in Dublin.

Only the Irish Civil War is not honoured here, for polemical reasons.

The garden is rather imposing, and consists of a neo-classical cross, with pediments, and a rectangular basin. An imposing statue named “The Children of Lir” by Oisin Kelly stands at the end of the basin, reinforcing the solemn aspect of the place.

The area is pleasant and well worth a walk. It is one of the official places where great political figures, such as Queen Elizabeth II, have gathered.
