Planned World War One Memorial Causing Upset


Share this article


There's upset over a plan to create a world war one memorial in Dublin's peace garden.

The Garden at Christ Church Cathedral has been suggested as the location for a landscape feature to commemorate 50,000 Irish soldiers who were killed in Flanders.

Some City Councillors believe the feature would be better suited in a different location.

Independent Councillor Cieran Perry believes the location of the planned memorial is wrong saying " The Flanders project it's a remembrance of thousands of ordinary working class soldiers killed  during the conflict of world war one but its not a commemoration of peace, the peace garden at Christ church is a celebration of peace not war and in my opinion should remain so".
