The garden, by Irish landscape designer Peter Donegan (above second right), was officially inaugurated by Patricia O’Brien, Ambassadeur d’Irlande en France (above in light blue coat).
Ms O’Brien was joined by Xavier Bertrand (Président de la Région Hauts-de-France), Thérèse Dheygers (Maire de Péronne) and Hervé François (Directeur de l’Historial de la Grande Guerre) and members of the Irish in France Association.
Peter Donegan’s garden was selected by a French jury to represent Ireland and he is one of 14 international designers chosen to design nine memorial gardens around the Hauts-de-France region.
