Better late than never, this ia a well designed memorial to members of the Defence Forces who died in service. This illuminated monument (that I had never seen before or heard of until last night) makes for a welcome break when strolling up Merrion Square West. I particularly liked the eternal flame burning at the centre of the monument which I believe is the perfect memorial to our fallen comrades. As memorials go, I liked it; I'm just not sure that I understand the significance of the location though...
