THE GREAT WAR MEMORIAL IN CORK CITY [PATTERNS OF LIGHT]-118625

THE GREAT WAR MEMORIAL IN CORK CITY [PATTERNS OF LIGHT]-118625

At the South Mall is a memorial to those Irishmen who died in the First World War. It was erected in 1925, and is one of the few example Irish examples of its type. Carved in relief on a modest limestone obelisk, sitting on a plinth, is the profile of a Munster Fusiliers soldier in full military uniform, head down, gun at rest. Each November wreaths are laid here to mark the anniversary of the armistice of 1918 at the end of the War.
