1916 Memorial, Sarsfield Bridge

After the Viscount was dislodged, the plinth remained idle for some time until it was decided to erect a 1916 memorial to the men who died for Ireland. Although Tom Clarke wasn’t from Limerick, he was married to Kathleen Daly, a niece of the Fenian, John Daly, and a sister of the executed Edward Daly who stands atop the memorial with Athea man Con Colbert (after whom Limerick Railway Station is called). The unveiling of the monument in 1954 saw thousands throng the city centre
