Since 1974, Glencree has engaged in practical peacebuilding and reconciliation in Ireland, north and south, and more recently, internationally. We work with former combatants, community leaders, victims/survivors, politicians, faith groups, young people and women. Next to the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation, in a landscaped quarry, is a stark reminder of the vast scale of the Second World War. This is the German Military Cemetery, containing 134 bodies. It is one of the many German war cemeteries in Western Europe. The quarry itself was owned by Lord Powerscourt, and it probably first came into use to supply building material for the nearby Glencree military barracks in 1803 (now the Visitor Centre). The new Operation Shamrock exhibition upstairs in the Armoury Café is now open. These new panels were kindly sponsored by the Dublin Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany.
