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.

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.
