Garden of Remembrance

by Pat Liddy

Many cities around the world have memorials honouring those who lost their lives in their own country’s struggle for independence from an outside power. Dublin is no different except in the unusual yet striking treatment of the subject. The Garden of Remembrance, situated off Parnell Square, was opened in 1966 on the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising, a seminal uprising during Easter Week 1916, which, although a military failure at the time, eventually led to Ireland’s independence from Great Britain in 1922. President Éamon de Valera, who performed the opening ceremony, was himself a rebel commander in 1916.
