Ennis memorial planned for Irishmen who died in the Vietnam War
Town council believe monument could act on a tourist attraction to the 1.4 million veterans in the US
The town council of Ennis, County Clare, has voted to erect a memorial to the Irish people who died during the Vietnam War.
The council unanimously voted in support of the memorial proposed by the United States-based veteran representative group. The memorial will commemorate the Irish men and women who served and died in allied service in South East Asia, from 1959 to 1975.
The memorial will be erected near Clonroadmore Park, as part of the International Remembrance Day, in November 2013.
According to the proposal the names of those Irish people who lost their lives will be listed on the memorial along with the inscription “The people of the allied nations express their heartfelt gratitude for the service and sacrifice of those above and to their families, loved ones and the Irish Nation.”
RTE reported that the council says the memorial could potentially serve as a tourist attraction to the estimated 1.4 million veterans in the United States.
