Volunteers From The New Barnsley Area

The New Barnsley memorial garden is greatly expanded over the single plaque from 2005, to include a larger main plaque, a smaller one commemorating early resistance “Sheas siad le chéile” [They stood together], and wrought-iron gates with a phoenix and “Óglaigh na hÉireann”.

Out Of The Ashes Of 1798

“I ndíl chuimhne – this plaque is dedicated to all those from the greater Newington area who lost their lives as a result of the conflict in this country.” Pikemen from the 1798 uprising flank a phoenix, with portraits above of Wolfe Tone, James Connolly, Henry Joy McCracken, and Mary Ann McCracken.

Glóire

The IRA memorial in the centre of Crossmaglen (in Cearnóg An Chairdineil Ó Fiaich) depicts a young man striding forward (as in the Gibraltar mural drawing on the memorial at Ballyseedy) over a phoenix.

“Glóire daoibhse a laochra umhla cróga a d’fhulaing le fonn ar méad bhur ngrá fial ar shaoirse na hÉireann.” “Glory to you all praised and humble heroes who have willingly suffered for your unselfish and passionate love of Irish freedom.”
