James Langton has sent the following photos in Glasnevin, and poses the question:  “There are also similar in mount Jerome. These are fine monuments and all are remembered on it except those who are in family plots, so why another?”

Indeed, they are fine monuments and we believe in the right place. At the end of the day the RIC and DMP (including the Black & Tans and Auxilaries ) of 1920 were an armed wing of an occupying  power at war and it should perhaps be left at that.
