The National Botanic Gardens Kilmacurragh, located in east County Wicklow is the centrepiece of an 18th century estate. Famous for its towering rhododendrons and wild flower meadows, the estate had a long and close association with the National Botanic Gardens. At present the estate is enjoying a major phase of replanting and rejuvenation, with phytogeographic plantings of wild collected plants from China, Australia and Chile.

2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War which had a significant impact on the fate of the estate. Many family members, tenants and staff of the estate lost their lives on the European battlefields. This exhibition honours the memory of those who died in World War I.

Note the exhibition is at Glasnevin not Kilmacurragh.
