The Garden of Remembrance

Dublin’s Garden of Remembrance is a memorial garden at Parnell Square, commemorating the lives of all those who died during Ireland’s struggle to gain independence from the UK. This location was chosen for its close ties to Ireland’s history of rebellion; indeed the entire area was renamed after the Irish nationalist statesman Charles Stewart Parnell.

The Conradh na Gaeilge – or Gaelic League – building at number 25, Parnell Square, was the site of important meetings of the Irish Republican Brotherhood in the lead-up to the 1916 Rising. Here we pay tribute with the ultimate Irish anthem ‘The Foggy Dew’.
