Insignias of military associations and peace groups

The Trust was formed in 2004 in the absence of a memorial on the island of Ireland specifically dedicated to the memory of all the Irish men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the cause of Peace and Freedom at home and worldwide.

 

The Tipperary Remembrance Arch

Tipperary Remembrance Arch memorial

Adjacent to St. Vincent’s Day Care Centre, on the site of the former Tipperary Military Barracks stands the only remaining portico of the Officers Mess and Living Quarters.
The Trust renovated the portico and upon completion we called it ” Tipperary Remembrance Arch”. Our President, Mary McAleese, dedicated it on the 30th September 2005 to the memory of the fallen. Read more about the Tipperary Remembrance Arch

Remembering the Fallen

The names of those who died since the end of WW2 are displayed on tablets on the rear of the arch. The Arch is too small to show the names of those who died in the wars and our war for independence. We are presently working on a database that will hold all the names and information on where they were killed and where they are interred.

Remembrance Ceremonies

The Trust holds an Annual Remembrance Ceremony at the Arch on the last Sunday of September and at any other opportunities by request.
