This beautiful garden in the heart of the city was designed by Daithi Hanly and dedicated to the memory of all those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish Freedom.
Its focal point is a large sculpture of the Children of Lir by Oisín Kelly, symbolising rebirth and resurrection, added in 1971.
The garden is intended as a place of quiet remembrance and reflection.
It is located in the northern fifth of the former Rotunda Gardens in Parnell Square (formerly Rutland Square), a Georgian Square at the northern end of O’Connell Street.
