Those From St Mary’s Parish

“I ndíl chuimhne orthu siúd ó pharóiste N. Muire a thug a riabh [raibh] acu ar son saoirse na hÉireann. Erected in proud and loving memory of all those from St Mary’s parish, Newry who have fought for Irish freeedom. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha. Pobal pharóiste N. Muire a thóg an leacht cuimhneacháin seo.” Pike-men are used on the base as a generic symbol of Irish nationalism, rather than mention of any particular group. In later years, stones to the Signatories and the hunger strikers will be added, along with graveside volunteers in modern garb.
