Media Mentions

A sample of the media articles that mention The Montreal Irish Monument Park Foundation. Most articles refer to our effort to build a beautiful world-class memorial space around the Black Rock.

However some articles also mention other efforts to preserve the rich history of Irish Montreal - for example, the "Naming of the REM Station"; preserving some of the history of St. Bridget's Home etc.
