LEAST WE FORGET

'Lest we Forget' War Memorial on the Grand Parade in Cork dedicated to the fallen County Cork servicemen
who gave their lives for freedom in World War I and World War II.

At the South Mall is a memorial to those Irishmen who died in the First World War. It was erected in 1925, and is one of the few example Irish examples of its type. Carved in relief on a modest limestone obelisk, sitting on a plinth, is the profile of a Munster Fusiliers soldier in full military uniform, head down, gun at rest. Each November wreaths are laid here to mark the anniversary of the armistice of 1918 at the end of the War.

"Greater Deed Hath No Man Done

"They Shall Grow Not Old,
As We That Are Left Grow Old.
Age Shall Not Weary Them,
Nor The Years Condemn.
At The Going Down Of The Sun,
And In The Morning
We Will Remember Them."

Tell them of us and say
For your tomorrow we gave our today
