Hoban Memorial Cuffesgrange Kilkenny

Hoban Memorial was constructed in 2008 to honour the 250th Anniversary of the birth of James Hoban (1758 - 1831), Architect of 'The White House'. 

Located at Desart, Cuffesgrange, close to the birthplace of James Hoban, the memorial arbour, which incorporates a 'Spirit of Place' was erected by architecture students from the Catholic University of Washington DC and local craftsmen.

The structure is 30 meters long and 3 meters high, is impressive, modern and well worth a visit.
