Good Work Continues on the 1916 Monument
The Mise Éire Monument
The wind blew the cover off this morning to reveal the new arrival!
The picture shows the central section of the Mise Éire monument – a cairn of stones and clay will now be added and the front apron will be drained and paved with a very unique design that we hope will gain the monument a special status in the national mind.
Then the entrance, with wheelchair capability, will be installed and the area sowed down to grass. Rowan or some tree like that will be sowed along by a new fence dividing the site from the field.
If all goes well we hope that Oulart will have an outstanding monument to 1916 and the War of Independence ready to open in late May.
Your support is much appreciated and relied upon.
