Walking up the laneway the first memorial is to those men and women who fought for Irish freedom throughout the generations.
Unveiled by Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams on 19 November 1995 and blessed by Fr. Des Wilson, the marble memorial is set in its own surround. And in three languages - Gaelige, French and English - it pays tribute to the men and women of 1798 and all those since then who fought for Ireland's freedom and those allies who supported that fight

 

The Cuchulainn monument stands majestically at the top of the laneway, bordered by young trees in a tranquil setting. It was erected to the memory of the volunteers of Greater Lenadoon Oglaigh Na hEireann who gave their lives between 1969and 2000. It was opened on 6th May 2000 by Sinn Fein President Mr Gerry Adams.

 


Outside the main entrance to the house stands the Belfast Hunger Strike memorial. It was erected on 7th October 2001 to the memory of Bobby Sands MP, Kieran Doherty TD and Joe McDonnell.


 

 

Also in 2001 12 trees, indigenous to Ireland, were planted to the memory of the ten 1981 hunger strikers and Frank Stagg and Michael Gaughan. Thededication ceremony took place on 5th May 2001 and was presided over by Sinn FeinPresident Mr GerryAdams. Most of the hunger striker families were represented and it was a truly memorable occasion.The legendary Christy Moore gave an emotional rendition of his song ‘The time has come’ composed in memory of Patsy O’Hara.
