A very appropriate memorial well placed
Jul 2018 • Family
The story of The Ballyseedy incident has been recalled many times and this memorial certainly does remind everyone of our country's past and the difficulties experienced by our people.It's very appropriate to remember all those who died in the early years of the foundation of the state and this memorial certainly pays tribute to them. Have always been interested in the positioning and design of this monument and it's well worth a visit.

Dramatic and engaging..

I love this memorial and have visited it every time I have been back to visit family in Ireland. I agree with the many comments that there needs to be better parking provided and maybe even a raised barrier so that people can walk in front of the monument without the risk of being run over.

odd place

Story behind this is great, but the position and access is a joke. Road is very busy and trying to stop and pull out again is hard. Going by foot is a very dangerous trek, so as important as it may be, it is just not worth the hassle.

THOUGHT PROVOKING

have visited this memorial many times on my visits to the area and have read many accounts of that terrible day.the statue of the woman holding the dead and dying is very painful to look upon but we cannot hide the past and we owe a moment of our busy lives to stop and think of those who died under the terrible tyranny of the past.

Nice to visit this site & remember these men who were murdered. Unfortunately the memorial is at the side of a very busy road so might be missed.

A monument to 8 men who were killed when 9 volunteers were tied together by Free State Army and a bomb placed in their midst. One was thrown clear and lived to tell the tale.

Very worthwhile to remember the atrocities that are committed in civil war....history repeats...different country...different continent.

Interesting history on the sculptor.

While you here....worth having a stroll around the nearby Ballyseedy Woods

We attended a wedding at Ballyseedy Castle and it was out of this world.
The area is fantastic and if you get good weather it is even better. and so near the small Kerry airport.
