Official launch of The Memory Poles Monument

Wednesday 24th May saw the official launch of The Memory Poles monument at the entrance of Mindszenty’s Park on Muckno Street, Castleblayney.

Muckno Street is one of the oldest Streets in town, originally called Noble Street. A lot of inhabitants and characters lived there have passed on to their eternal rest and The Memory Poles have been placed in their memory.

The Memory Poles were erected by Castleblayney Tidy Towns, designed by Noel Mc Guigan using Bog Wood donated by McShane family, Kinnagin and crafted by blacksmith Peter Cassidy. This project was funded by The Municipal District Carrickmacross-Castleblayney.
