I think we have seen this monument and church before but never in the Clonbrock Collection! A small obelisk in the church grounds with an overkill of railings to protect it. What is it, where is it and is it still there?
was first to identify this. Made a bit easier one imagines because we've been here before
:) In short, it's the "Siege Heroes Mound", in the grounds of St Columb’s Cathedral, commemorating those who lost their lives in the 1689 Siege of Derry....
