Port Weymss/Portnahaven War Memorial

The War Memorial is a stone cross with Celtic knotwork which sits up on the hillside above the bay between Port Weymss and Portnahaven. It is surrounded by a stone enclosure with wrought iron gate. The men who died during WWI are listed on one side of the cross and the men who died during WWII are listed on the other side.

The WWI inscription reads ‘To the glory of God and in memory of the men of this district who fell in the Great War 1914-1919’. ‘Their name liveth for evermore’.

‘CREDH A’S MO NA SO CHA’N EIL AIC NEACH AIR BITH, CU’H LEICEADH DUINE A BHEATHA SIOS AIRSON A CHAIRDEAN’.

The above inscription is followed by the names of the men who died. You will find details of the WW1 deaths in the attached pdf document. If anyone can add to these details, please contact us.
