Now that the project is complete, we will no longer be taking donations. If you have not had the chance to visit the memorial, please visit Ennis, County Clare, Ireland to see the memorial.

Unveiling and dedication of the memorial will take place at 11:00 am on 11/11/2016 in Ennis Peace Park. Among the attendees will be the US defense attache from Dublin, representatives from Clare County Council, the American Legion in Ireland, US Vietnam veterans, and other officials.

Members of the public and especially friends and families of the 30 listed on the memorial are welcome. This memorial is dedicated to the Irishmen and Irishwoman who served with allied forces in Southeast Asia during the period of 1964 through 1975. Those who were lost are listed.

We express our heartfelt gratitude for the service and sacrifice of those above and to their families, loved ones, and the Irish nation.
Erected with thanks Vietnam Veterans, their families, friends and Clare County Council.

That over 2,500 Irish Citizens served in allied military forces during the Viet Nam War, and that 30 of them, including one woman, an Irish nurse, lost their lives in that conflict.

These young Irish men and women served in the militaries of the United States, Australia and Canada as well as with Air America and the United States Agency for International Development.

Irish Citizens who were living in the United States and had reached the age of 18, were subject to the military draft. Many volunteered for military service to support their adopted county, others were drafted. Both served with great distinction and were decorated for their valor and sacrifice.

The Irish Viet Nam Veterans Memorial Project is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization formed exclusively to honor and memorialize their service and sacrifice and to express our heartfelt gratitude to these Irish Citizens, their families and loved ones.

To this end, the Irish Viet Nam Veterans memorial Project has been established to erect a memorial in the Town of Ennis, County Clare, Ireland. The memorial lists the names of those Irish citizens who lost their lives in the Vietnam War.

In December 2012, the Ennis Town Council, unanimously approved our proposal to erect a memorial honoring those Irish men and women who served and listing by name those who gave their lives. The completed memorial will be dedicated in Ennis on 11/11/2016.

We continue to actively seek sponsors and financial supporters to enable us to complete this worthy project.
