    Just off the top of my head there are other memorials throughout West Waterford:
    Burgery Ambush Memorial
    Memorial to Pat Keating and Sean Fitzgerald at the former Burgery gate site
    Kilgobnet mine disaster
    Piltown Ambush Memorial
    Cappoquin Monument en route to Mt Mellary

    No doubt other sites may merit a similar treatment:
    e.g., Ardmore R.I.C Barracks site
    Brown’s Pike adjacent to Master McGrath
    Rockfield, Cappagh
    Walsh’s Hotel, Cappoquin
    Durrow, Ballyvoyle
    Faha Bridge, Grawn
    Dunkitt, Co. Kilkenny
