Distinguished R.A.F. Visitor

A recent visitor to the Mayo Peace Park, was Mr Frank Brian of the RAF Association, and after a brief welcoming ceremony,  he laid a wreath on behalf of the Association,  in memory of all who died. 

Mayo World War Memorial's

County Mayo is certainly leading the way for  the long overdue  commemoration of all those who served and died in the world war's.  

The Mayo Peace Park in Castlebar, was the first to do so  on a county basis and  that has inspired many  communities to erect their own local memorials. The town of Ballina  will soon be the first to unveil such a memorial and  we have learned  that  plans are afoot to do the same in Foxford & Straide, whilst Achill Island is also  looking at the possibility of having  its  own memorial.

Many  counties around Ireland have followed the  example set in Mayo and world  war memorials  were erected in Cavan & Waterford , whilst Kilkenny are  well on the way with their plans.  It is expected that County Clare will follow suit after that.
