Sanctuary Synthetics were honoured to work with The Glasnevin Trust ( established 1823) in transforming the unmarked graves of the Great War’s fallen, in time for the Armistice Day Commemoration Ceremony on November 11th 2010.
Over 100 square metres of our ‘Luna’ grass was used to enhance the new memorial plot. We have been supplying Glasnevin Trust with Eco-C grass for burials for some time now and thus were chosen to assist in this project.
The project of marking the graves was started last year on Armistice Day and headstones were erected at the graves of four Irish servicemen for the first time.
Ecumenical and military ceremonies took place at the O’Connell Tower, Glasnevin Cemetery.
Glasnevin Trust historian Shane MacThomais researched the stories of the 43 deceased. He uncovered considerable detail about the personal and military lives of the servicemen and women spanning from the Boer War, Chinese Boxer Rebellion, Zulu Wars, and World War I and II.
