The very sad death has occurred of Mr Eddie Hoban of the Curragh, Castlebar, Eddie was a stalwart supporter of all our events at the Mayo Peace Park and was instrumental in having a  memorial erected in memory of all those  who died for Ireland.  He was a close relative of Nurse Bridget Quinn, a brave nurse who died trying to protect her patients, during a German bombing raid on London. 

 
Prestigious Visit

Prestigious Visit

Sunday the 22nd of February 2015, will go down as a very historic day in the history of the Mayo Peace Park.  

We had  a top level visit  from the Irish Government, led  by  the Irish Prime Minister, An Taoiseach  Mr Enda Kenny,  Mrs Frances Fitzgerald, the Irish Minister for Justice, Mr Simon Coveney, the Minister for Defence and Mr Charlie Flanagan the Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Fresh Floral Wreaths  were laid at the Garda Memorial by the Justice Minister and at the world war one memorial by the Ministers  for Defence and Foreign Affairs.

In what was a remarkable and  beautiful ceremony, An Taoiseach and the  three Ministers delivered excellent and very thought  provoking speech's on the value of world  peace, praising the committement and  sacrifice  of those who have served our country at home and abroad.
