    Anyone get the Rath Cross Memorial? (The Ashbourne Ambush of 1916?) Its Located at O 054 537. ( 53°31'23.05"N 6°24'46.71"W) There is a Large Statue dedicated to Thomas Ashe and the People who died that Day. I have a long article about it somewhere, Must post it up. There's a lot of Forgotten history about this area of Fingal.

    Well the action was carried out by the Fingal Volunteers and Fingal is traditionally bordered by the Tolka, The Delvin and the Hills west of Ashbourne.

That has been recently refurbished.The 1798 Tournant graveyard is just outside the village, where the 40 are buried.

    I've seen the one in Dunlavin, unfortunately, always from military transport
    travelling from the Curragh to the Glen. One day I'll travel myself and see that one.

    Meanwhile this one is in Castlecomer Protestant Cemetery;

    Groundhog, Joshua, and others, well done on your efforts to highlight the memorials and the efforts of Irish men and women in their vision of a new Ireland.

    This one stands in Donoughmore village. There's another in the cemetery just up the road. I'll post pics of that later on.

    Hi there
    Whilst in Clonmacnoise recently, I was surprised to see two standard Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstones (the plain grey style with the unit crest and service number) for two RAF personnel, one an AC2 and the other a WAAF. I found at least eight more in a random wander-around the graveyard in Tory Top Road, Cork, many of which were dated from the War of Independence era.There was also a memorial plaque for an officer killed in a Spanish war, a few centuries ago. Are there many of the CWCG headstones about the country?
    regards
    GttC

    I've photographed about 200 in Waterford, Tipperary, Cork and Kilkenny. There is a CWGC book available listing the burials by county.

    The Seahorse memorial at the Doneraile walk, Tramore. The Seahorse was a troop ship returning from the Crimea which sank in Tramore bay in 1816 with the loss of 292 men and 71 women and children.
