This place is amazing, a memorial garden for the 343 Firemen and some police officers who sadly lost their lives in America during 9/11. A must if you're in southern Ireland, very near kinsale. I found it very emotional.
Beautiful. Would highly recommend visiting this garden if on holiday in Kinsale or even a local to the area.
