Civic Memorials

The Council regularly receives inquiries regarding Civic Memorials to commemorate a person, persons or event. It is recognised by the Council that Civic Memorials offer opportunities for the Council to celebrate, honour or remember a person, group of persons or event of significance. It allows the Council to integrate important aspects of the county’s past culture and society into the present day and to raise awareness of the subject being commemorated among the public.

If you would like to suggest a Civic Memorial please submit a proposal to the Heritage Officer at or c/o The Memorials Committee, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, County Hall, Marine Road, Dún Laoghaire.
