I love this memorial and have visited it every time I have been back to visit family in Ireland. I agree with the many comments that there needs to be better parking provided and maybe even a raised barrier so that people can walk in front of the monument without the risk of being run over.

Story behind this is great, but the position and access is a joke. Road is very busy and trying to stop and pull out again is hard. Going by foot is a very dangerous trek, so as important as it may be, it is just not worth the hassle.

Nice to visit this site & remember these men who were murdered. Unfortunately the memorial is at the side of a very busy road so might be missed.

A monument to 8 men who were killed when 9 volunteers were tied together by Free State Army and a bomb placed in their midst. One was thrown clear and lived to tell the tale.

Very worthwhile to remember the atrocities that are committed in civil war....history repeats...different country...different continent. Interesting history on the sculptor. While you here....worth having a stroll around the nearby Ballyseedy Woods

We attended a wedding at Ballyseedy Castle and it was out of this world. The area is fantastic and if you get good weather it is even better. and so near the small Kerry airport.

The monument represents a very bad and sad time in Kerry & Irish history. The monument is very well maintained and has a great design. There are plenty of explanations as to what went on here. Be careful, the road is much bigger and busier now than when the memorial was built. Pull to the side and see this place

A really beautiful memorial. However, the road is very busy and it's impossible to stop and linger. Pity there it wasn't set a little further back and there isn't a pull in area. Worth a look though, but would prefer a more leisurely look without being afraid of being rear-ended or getting run over.
