Patriots & Martyrs Hall of Fame

In previous centuries Ireland’s people endured great persecution and slaughter of its people by foreign invaders. In the 21st century Ireland is still a land with a political northern border that divides the province of Ulster in two separate land lines. The six counties of Antrim, Armagh, Tyrone, Down, Fermanagh, and Derry are divided by a British border from adjoining counties Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan.

Our patriots and martyrs are the people who sacrificed their lives for future generations of Irish citizens to enjoy liberty and peace on the Island Of Ireland.
