The Memorial

The Memorial is a scaled replica of the Twin Towers, carved in blocks of Limestone. It was crafted under the supervision of Bernard Groome, a local stonemason and sculptor. It was designed by Brian Swan, Senior Architect with Kildare County Council.

The Memorial is erected on a specially prepared plinth, with carved crests inlaid in stone flags. The twin blocks carry the names engraved of all the men and women of the New York Fire Department, Police Officers and Port Authority officals who died in the Twin Towers.

The memorial is set in a specially prepared copse of newly planted native oak saplings. These oak saplings will grow to maturity, and will live for well over a hundred years"
