Monument to Thomas D'Arcy McGee
Thomas D'Arcy McGee (1825-1868) politician, poet and journalist was a native of Carlingford. Prominent in the Young Ireland movement and in the unsuccessful rebellion of 1848, he was forced to flee to Canada. There he became a prominent politician. He was later to become highly critical of the Irish ultra-nationalist Fenian movement. This led to his assassination in 1868. This monument was unveiled in 1991 by the Irish Taoiseach, Charles Haughey and the Canadian Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney.
