Garden of Remembrance
The Ringfinnan Garden of Remembrance here in Kinsale looks beautiful this weekend in preparation for the US Memorial Day holiday. US flags have been placed adjacent to all the trees planted to the memory of Fr. Mychal Judge and to the 343 fire fighters who lost their lives in New York on September 11th, 2001.
The Kinsale Garden of Remembrance was initiated by Kathleen Murphy, a nurse in New York City. She was born in Ringfinnan, Kinsale and her family continue to reside here. The first tree planting ceremony took place in November 2001 and this was followed by an official dedication of the garden on 10th March 2002 by the then Minister for Agriculture & Food, Joe Walsh, T.D.
Approx a 6-minute drive from Actons Hotel.
