″The history of Wellington Square, Magazine Rd, Cork City, in the parish of St. Finbarrs, townland of Huggartsland, parallels with some of the major happenings in two hundred years of Irish history. From the confiscation of lands in the seventeenth century and the impact of the American and French Revolutions on Irish political thought, to the United Irishmen and the Sheares Brothers of Cork. To the Militia Regiments of the 1790s whose recruits were stationed in the square to the Duke of Wellington and the battle of Waterloo of 1815 which gave the square, and No.11 their names.” (from Introduction)
