Memorial History
Dungannon War Memorial is situated in the Market Square in the centre of the shopping area of the town
The inscription on the memorial is ;-
"In Memory Of The Soldiers And Nurses Of Dungannon Who Gave Their Lives For Freedom And Humanity In The Great War 1914 – 1918
The memorial, which has been erected at a cost of £1,700, is the work of Mr. F.W. Pomeroy, R.A., London.
It consists of a bronze figure, a soldier representing Victory, standing about 8 feet 6 inches, in height, which is mounted on a large pedestal of Stancliffe stone, on which are four bronze panels containing some 200 names of the fallen of Dungannon, almost 100 of those being men of the Royal Inniskillings Fusiliers.
The total height of the monument is 18 feet 6 inches (approx 6m), and weights about 30 tons. It was unveiled by the Countess of Ranfurly.
During his speech Brigadier-General Ricardo said, ‘Let the comradeship of the trenches, where no division of creed or class was known, be with them to the end. The memorial should remind them of their duty toex-Service men, especially the scarred and maimed in mind or body, many of whom to-day were unemployed. The men whom they honoured were all volunteers. No compulsion was needed to urge them. They lived and died free men.’
Dr. F. C. Mann, chairman of the Dungannon War Memorial Committee, read out the list of the fallen of Dungannon and district, whose names were inscribed on the memorial.
