Mayo Peace Park
The Mayo Peace Park is located directly across from the Harlequin Hotel in Castlebar. This park is dedicated to honour the memory of all those from Mayo, who served and died in all wars worldwide and conflicts of the past century, with the Allied and Commonwealth Forces, a forgotten generation who were written out of local history until recent times. It remembers those who served or died in all wars worldwide and it especially remembers all those Mayo born Irish Army soldiers who served and died on UN operations.
At 2pm, on Tuesday the 7th of October 2008, President of Ireland Mrs Mary McAleese officially opened the Mayo Peace Park, Garden of Remembrance in Castlebar, County Mayo.
