The pillar, 36 feet high is built of granite and marble brought from the four provinces. The marble figures at the base, which were cut in Italy, are symbolic of ÉIRE handing on the torch of freedom from the dying volunteers to the youth of the nation.
The memorial was unveiled by Sean T. O'Ceallaigh, President of Ireland on Easter Sunday, 10th April 1955.
