Essential work needs to be carried out - within the first six months of 2021 - on the Sean Wall Monument in Bruff to prevent serious structural defects in the future.
While the above needs to be prioritized, we would like to also:
· Improve access to the site and develop it as a tourist attraction.
· Increase the information available to stimulate national interest by including individual information signs on each of the 16 leaders who were executed in May 1916 for their involvement in the Easter Rising .
· Provide a focus on the contribution of women in the struggles with emphasis
on Limerick woman Kathleen Clarke, nee Daly who was wife of Tom Clarke and older sister of Edward Daly, both of whom were executed in the aftermath of the Rising.
· Install seating for the comfort of visitors, many of whom will be elderly.
Our goal is to create a calm and tranquil space which when finished, will provide a special sanctuary where people can stop for a moment, reflect, and remember those who lost their lives serving their country. This will add an extra dimension to the existing site by developing a national attraction to the current memorial.
Your donation will go towards the renovation and additional development of the monument site as proposed in our video. Its prominent location at the junction of Fair Green and Main Street opposite the Catholic Church, and the fact that it is larger than life, makes it a focal point in Bruff. The Sean Wall Monument, JFK Statue and Fitzgerald Centre which are in the triangle known as Fairgreen provide different but complementary cultural tourist attractions.
