Connelly Hospital marks James’s execution in 1916
On Friday 13th of May, 100 years and one day after the execution of James Connelly, a Giant Redwood was planted in his memory in the grounds of the hospital in Blanchardstown named in his honour.
This is to match a somewhat older and bigger Sequoiadendron giganteum in the centre of the entrance roundabout to the hospital. (Probably circa 140 years old)
Thanks to Karl Dalton who is manager of the grounds in the hospital for inviting the Tree Council be part of the event.
