The wall includes the names of civilians who lost their lives as well as Irish and British military personnel, with the decision to include those on the British side alongside the rebels of 1916 causing some controversy amongst Republican groups and 1916 Relatives Groups.

Some of those opposed to the decision staged a protest outside the cemetery this morning.

An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, laid a wreath and gave an address at the ceremony, which was attended by representatives of a number of different religious faiths in Ireland and a number of 1916 relatives.
