Situated at the entrance to St. Stephens Green just off Grafton, the Fusilier's Arch commemorates the Irish who fought in the Second Boer War in South Africa, Rising high above the trees and interlocking streets, it draws considerable attention through its majestic shape and decorated surfaces. It is also a beautiful invitation to pedestrians to visit The Green with its... More

We were walking towards Grafton St. from St. Stephens Green and came upon this monument unexpectedly. The architecture is quite good and impressive. Erected in 1907, it was dedicated to the officers, non-commissioned officers and enlisted men of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers who fought and died in the Second Boer War (1899-1902).

This arch forms the main entrance to St Stephen's Green from the Grafton St side. It has particular poignancy for me as a South African with British roots. The names of the battles of the Boer War are inscribed along the top of the arch, the 200 or so names of the fallen are inscribed on the inner part of... More

From the previous posts you will see that this memorial was erected in respect to fallen soldiers, mainly from Dublin who died in far off shores of South Africa, and sadly that some rather disrespectful people named it 'traitors gate'. Could you imagine if in about 20 years time a new government takes over Britain or the states and lets... More

Acting as the main entrance to St Stephen's Green, this is a lovely arch with military history and names of fallen soldiers etched in above your head. It is a great looking piece of architecture.

It's a triumphal arch commemorating the Royal Dublin Fusiliers that served in the Second Boer war. Directly over the arch you'll see the inscription of the names of the battle locations (Talana, Colenso, Harts Hill, and Ladysmith). Underneath the arch are the names of the 212 who died in the war. It appears to be modeled after the Arch of... More

I know it's only half as wide and one-fifth as high, but every time I see this landmark monument at the Grafton Street entrance to St. Stephen's Green, I somehow can't help thinking of the world famous Arc de Triomphe. Could this be a case of "all triumphal arches look the same" ? Maybe. It does indeed appear that both... More
