Parnell National Memorial Park

The Parnell National Memorial Park, in the centre of Rathdrum and 17km from Arklow, was established to commemorate local-born Irish nationalist hero Charles Stewart Parnell.

Nearby Avondale House was the birthplace and home of Charles Stewart Parnell (1846-1891) remembered as one of the greatest political leaders in Irish history. The Parnell National Memorial Park contains walks, restful seating areas, streams, bronze deer sculpture and the Feagh McHugh O'Byrne Commemorative Stone. The impressive bronze statue of Parnell overlooks the entire Park and if you are visiting Dublin city centre, you will also find a large granite obelisk and bronze stature of Charles Steward Parnell on the capitals’ main thoroughfare O’Connell Street.

Also within the park surrounds is an outdoor exercise area, children’s playground and free car parking.
