The Fusiliers Arch located at the northwest of Stephens Green Dublin commemorates soldiers of the
Royal Dublin Fusiliers who died in the Boer War between 1899-1902.
Almost 4,000 members of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers also died at Gallipoli during the landing at V-Beach on April 25th, 1915 & the Suvla Bay landings later that year when the 6th and 7th Dublin batallions sustained heavy losses.
The €2.5bn Metro North project is now likely to be shelved, as reported by the Irish Independent.
Under plans drawn up for the Metro North expansion of Dublin's Luas service, the Arch would have been dismantled for up to 3 years, dozens of mature trees removed & a quarter of the Park turned into a construction site.
The Stephen's Green park was given to the people of Dublin in 1880 by Sir Arthur Edward Guinness (Lord Ardilaun.)
