This garden is dedicated to the memory of all those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish freedom.
WE SAW A VISION (a poem by Liam Mac Uistin)
In the darkness of despair we saw a vision, We lit the light of hope and it was not extinguished,
In the desert of discouragement we saw a vision, We planted the tree of value and it blossomed,
In the winter of the bondage we saw a vision, We melted the snow of lethargy and the river of resurrection flowed from it.
We sent our vision aswim like a swan on the river.
The vision became a reality. Winter became summer. Bondage became freedom. And this we left to you as your inheritance.
O generation of freedom remember us, the generation of the vision.
