Garden
This garden of Remembrance was established by Kathleen Murphy in November 2001. Kathleen grew up in Ringfinnan, Kinsale, County Cork which is located in the south of Ireland. Following her training as a nurse in England she moved to New York where she worked as a staff nurse for 40 years in Lennox Hill Hospital.

Kathleen always admired the brave and courageous work of firefighters. Following the 9/11 attacks she decided to establish the garden of remembrance in memory to the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on September 11th 2001.

Kathleen passed away in March 2011 in New York following a battle with cancer and is buried less than 2 miles from the garden.

  • Visited here on September 10th, 2016. As a US citizen, it was an incredibly touching experience. Entering the garden through the darkness under the trees and then entering the open and sunny center square was very moving. I highly recommend this experience for caring individuals of any nationality.
  • Really touchy, a piece of brave and sacrifice in the south of Ireland
  • Very touching monument, in the typical US cemetery style. Small parking lot in front of the Memorial.
