“We are where we come from!

Latest News
Following their issue of sketch drawings to Vancouver Parks Board for George Wainborn and David Lam Park sites, the Monument Society received an update on St. Patrick’s Day that Parks Board and the Landscape Designers for both parks like the designs.

The Society has since commenced work on computer model drawings for the George Wainbourn site in preparation for the proposed public process. No Approvals can be provided by Parks Board until a successful Public Process has occurred.

It has been a long journey to get to this vital stage of the project. Much has been achieved by patient and friendly communication by the Monument Society, Vancouver Parks Board, the City of Vancouver, those named on the Monument and/or their support persons, the patrons and many sponsors who have contributed financially to the project to date.

Two hurdles remain: The completion of the CADD drawings for the Public Process and Raising the outstanding funds required. The Society is therefore making preparations to restart our fundraising campaign as soon as possible for the Monument at False Creek Vancouver BC. If you would like to help in anyway please contact Brendan Flynn at brendanflynn_1@hotmail.com or (604) 873-3167. Thank you.

Names / Art Panels
For the Wainborn design a four arm cross shaped design is planned. Each side of each arm will include two (2) Art panels and two (2) Names panels each measuring 24” x 24”. See table below. The Society welcomes suggestions or comments on the proposed layout at irelandmonumentvancouver@gmail.com

ART Each panel will feature artwork commemorating a major contribution of Irish Canadians to Canada. See Page 16 for Art Panel information.

NAMES Each panel will feature 16 Names of Irish Canadians or Canadians of Irish descent with a statement for each name describing the person’s or group’s contribution. There will be a total of 256 names.
