Glasnevin 'necrology wall' memorial discontinued due to vandalism fears

    Chairman of Dublin Cemeteries Trust, David Bunworth, said the wall had been vandalised three times and it would be impossible to stop a fourth such incident.

    Instead, he said the trust would erect a separate memorial to all those who died in the 1916-1923 period along with a book commemorating the dead from that period who are buried in the cemetery.

    Don't think it should have ever got the go-ahead in the form it was, but some of the British soldiers who were named on it are buried in Glasnevin, so you can see why they might have went that route
