Situated close to Heuston railway station this small park is an oasis of tranquility in the City Centre. Dedicated to the memory of the Croppies, the men and women who gave their lives during the rising of 1798, this small park is well laid out...More

Pictures of the place show big green lawn dotted with stones of the Croppies resting place. This summer, being unusually hot and dry left most of the grass dry and yellow and it looked neglected. In addition some "tenants" properties added to this unpleasant feeling....More

Very small park, but a nice place to sit, but quite it is not. There are two separate parts to the park to enjoy.

This is a really lovely little space and park that is well kept. It is located between the Museum at Collins Barracks and the river Liffey. The park is a memorial to the ‘Croppy Boys’ of the 1798 rebellion and there are a number monuments...More
