Plaque to Markievicz at ‘Our Lady of Lourdes’ Hospital in Drogheda. It was donated by former friend  and Fianna Chief Eamon Martin in 1960. A children’s ward was also gifted to the hospital by Eamon Martin on behalf of Fianna Eireann to honour the life of Markievicz. The plaque still hangs on the wall of the hospital.

It is a fine memorial to a great woman.
