          Glen of Imaal Memorial

          This memorial commemorates the 16 soldiers killed in training in the Glen in 1941. I would have thought that the lads killed in the 1977 mortar accident would have been added.

              It was during the testing of an anti-tank mine.

              In addition 3 men were totally blinded (1 of whom was also partially disabled).

                One of the more obvious. St. Stephens Green Main gate - dedicated to the Irish dead (on the British side) of the Boer war

                  There was a monument outside the Church In Collins Barracks, Cork to the other men killed in the Glen in 1977, however there is some construction work ongoing there at the moment, and Its difficult to get near.

                    There is also one in tramore Co. Waterford of a plane that crashed near the shore.

                      Are you referring to the Dh248 memorial?

                        True, but putting an additional plaque on the Glen site should have been an obvious move.

                            That's an ongoing project. There are many more memorals than that in the country.

                              There is a memorial at Pickardstown near Tramore from the war of Independence, and also a memorial at the Doneraile walk in Tramore to the men who died when the troop ship Seahorse sank in Tramore bay. It was returning from the Crimea with the 2nd battalion of the 59th regiment of foot soldiers.
