The Irish Monument honors the contribution ± 500 Irish volunteers made
during the Second Boer War (1899-1902) on the part of the Boers
against the mighty British Empire.
The architect Jan van Wyk also designed the Language Monument in Paarl.
The design for the Irish Monument, which consists of 4 pillars, symbolize the 4 Irish commandos in an ascending line to form the ultimate goal of freedom.
The Irish Monument stood in Brixton, Johannesburg, originally, and was unveiled in 1975 by Mrs Betsie Verwoerd. After the year 2000, the monument started to decay and would have been demolished. But in a joint effort of the FF +, Orania Movement and sympathetic supporters the monument was saved and reconstructed in Orania. It is part of the heritage site on the hill, with the chest figures and rock engraving and also where the trail starts.
