Mayo Memorial Peace Park

The Mayo Memorial Peace Park Garden of Remembrance, in Castlebar County Mayo, was officially opened by the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, in October 2008.

The Park commemorates the men and women of Mayo killed in the world wars of the last century, with the Allied and Commonwealth Forces, a forgotten generation who were written out of local history until recent times. This park especially remembers all those Mayo born Irish Army soldiers who served and died on UN operations.

On the Mayo Memorial Peace Park website you can view a virtual tour of The Mayo Memorial Peace Park.
