Opened in 1988, this recent additions to the WW1 memorial list pays recognition to the Irish involvement in the war and all those that died, were wounded or are missing. A traditional round Irish tower is most noteworthy at 33.5 meters high and is designed to light up by the sun only once a year, on the 11th hour on November 11th – Armistice Day. On the ground are three pillars for the three divisions that fought with the British army, as well as nine stone tablets with poems and prose from Irishmen at war.
