This was a wonderful new memorial designed by Liam O'Connor.
Located on the corner of Green Park, this is an outstanding piece of work which now acts as a new access into the park and is a very fitting memorial as it complements the Wellington Arch on Hyde Park corner and the wonderful gates into Hyde Park.
McConnells were involved from foundation levels and built the structural brick and stone cladding using very traditional skills. Twelve large Portland Stone doric columns were produced and are located to lead the visitor into a large open space where there is a beautiful red porphery plinth. The amazing Philip Jackson bronze sculpture was placed in this paved area of Mourne granite grey.
