This monument is directly below the windows of the North Transept of St Patrick's Cathedral , Dublin., just about visible in this image. Hanging above the arches of the North Transept is a number of flags which commemorate Irish men and women who died in service of the British Army. Some of these are between one hundred to one hundred and fifty years old and would have served as regimental colours by Irish regiments such as the Royal Irish Regiment and the Royal Dublin Fusiliers. A few may have been carried in battles which occurred in places such as China, Burma and the Crimea (Ukraine). A few other flags are more modern (such as one for the R.A.F) and serve as a reminder of the Irish men and women who died during World War I and World War II.
