The war memorial archway commemorates soldiers of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers who died during the Boer War between 1899-1902. Their names are inscribed underside of the arch. Almost 4,000 Royal Dublin Fusiliers died at Gallipoli during the V-Beach landing on April 25th 1915.

The €2.5bn Metro North project has been changed. Under original plans drawn up for North city expansion of Dublin's Luas tram service, the Arch would have been dismantled for up to 3 years. Dozens of mature trees were to be felled & removed with a quarter of Stephens Green park turned into a construction site for the duration.
Stephen's Green park was given to the people of Dublin in 1880 by Sir Arthur Edward Guinness (Lord Ardilaun.)
