as Architect to, and one of the Trustees of,
A Journey of Reconciliation Trust

The cladding of the Tower is faced with stone that was salvaged from The Mullingar Workhouse, which was demolished in 1996-7.
The Park was officially opened on 11 November 1998 by President Mary McAleese, Uachtarain na hEireann,

One of the best days of my life.
