History

The name of Plunkett Park has a dual significance. One of our patrons was a mighty figure in the history of the Catholic Church in Ireland of almost three hundred years ago (St. Oliver Plunkett); the other, a valiant, quiet man who died a soldier’s death in Ireland’s most deathless struggle but a generation ago (Joseph Mary Plunkett). Both bore the same family name and were related by blood. Both won a martyr’s crown from minions of the same adversary, the one for the Faith, the other for the Motherland.
