This monument commemorates the bravery of the Irish in 1796 against French troops. The grounds are well maintained, and there was a very helpful guide on site to show us around and give us an explanation of the historic events.

St. Lucia is about the scenery. This is an excellent site for your photo ops. Get a guide who can give you some St. Lucia history while you relish the views and you have a nice excursion
