“Mayo Peace Park and Garden of Remembrance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Mayo Peace Park and Garden of Remembrance is a result of Michael Feeney's wish to commemorate his grand father who was killed in WW1. The main memorial contains the names of over 1100 Mayo men who died in WW1. Other memorials remember the Mayo men and women who died in other conflicts throughout the word. The memorial garden is based on the concept of the All Seeing Eye - an eye on the past to learn of its mistakes, an eye to future not to repeat them. The Park is the property of the local town council and is run by a small committee of volunteers who organise events and facilitate visitors.

“A tribute to the Irish who served in the WW1 & 2.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Several thousand local men lost their lives serving in the World Wars of the 20th century, serving in the armies of Britain, Canada, USA and other nations. They have not been recognized by Ireland, but a few local citizens have persevered and built a fitting place of memory for these servicemen. Well done.
