Browne-Clayton Monument

The Browne-Clayton Monument in County Wexford was built in memory of Sir Ralph Abercrombie, who was a Scottish soldier and politician. Abercrombie also served as the Commander-in-Chief of British forces in Ireland.

The monument, which is modelled after Pompey's Pillar in Egypt, is roughly 28 metres in height and it is situated on Carrigadaggan Hill, across the road from Carrigbyrne Hill on the N25 road between New Ross and Wexford Town.

It is worth noting that this is the only existing Corinthian pillar that can be accessed from the inside.

In the mid-1990s, the monument was struck by lightning, leaving it in need of structural repairs.
