1916 CELTIC CROSS IN BALLSBRIDGE
CELTIC CROSS AT THE CORNER OF HERBERT PARK AND CLYDE ROAD

This memorial is located not far from the US Embassy in Dublin.

This celtic cross at the corner of Herbert Park and Clyde Road is dedicated to the memory of the officers and men of the IRA’s Third Battalion Dublin Brigade.

During the 1916 Rising, the Battalion saw action at nearby Boland’s Bakery on Grand Canal Street, Haddington Road Railway Bridge, Clanwilliam House on the north side of Mount Street Bridge, St. Stephen’s School and the Parochial Hall on the south side of bridge and No. 25 Northumberland Road.

After their surrender, De Valera and his men were held in horse-boxes in the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) just a few minutes from the present day memorial.

The main focus of the Third Battalion was the area around Northumberland Road, Mount Street Bridge, Pearse Street, Bolands Mills, Dame Street and the district known as the Dardanelles, including Aungier Street and Wexford Street.
