Gardaí investigating after Irish revolution memorial wall vandalised in Glasnevin again

Vandals damaged the wall that commemorates all those who died from the Easter Rising in 1916 to the end of the Civil War in 1923.

Gardaí are investigating an act of vandalism that occurred in Glasnevin cemetery in Dublin in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Glasnevin’s memorial wall, unveiled in 2016 to remember all those who died during the Irish revolution, was tarnished for the second time in its history.

The most recent act of vandalism occurred on Tuesday 4 February at approximately 3.40am.

The memorial wall suffered significant damage during the incident. No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.

This is the second time that the memorial has been vandalised in recent years, after paint was thrown upon the wall in 2017.

The memorial features the names of all those who died as a result of the conflict during the period of 1916 to 1923, in chronological and alphabetical order.

The memorial includes the names of British soldiers who died in the Easter Rising as it bears the names of all those who died in the conflict 100 years ago, Irish and British, military and civilian.
