War Memorial Gardens, Dublin 8

The War Memorial was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens as a garden of simple dignity commemorating the 49,000 Irish Soldiers who died in the First World War.
The Irish National War Memorial Gardens is an Irish war memorial in Inchicore, Dublin dedicated to the memory of the 49,400 Irish soldiers who gave their lives in the Great War, 1914-1918 out of over 300,000 Irishmen who served in all armies.
The Memorial Gardens also commemorate all other Irish men and women who at that time served, fought and died in Irish regiments of the Allied armies, the British, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, South African and United States armies in support of the Triple Entente's war effort against the Central Powers.

At either end are two pairs of Bookrooms in granite, which hold the names of those who died in World War I.
The Irish National War Memorial Gardens are now managed by Dúchas, The Heritage Service of the Department of Environment, Heritage & Local Government in conjunction with the National War Memorial Committee.
A further Great War Irish national memorial, taking the form of an All-Ireland journey of conciliation, was opened in 1998 at the Island of Ireland Peace Park, Messines, Flanders, Belgium.
Those who died in the Easter Rising which ran concurrently with the First World War, and the Irish War of Independence, are commemorated in the Gardens of Remembrance on Parnell Square, Dublin.
