Berrigan War Memorial Swimming Pool commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action during World Wars One and Two,

Berrigan residents have been giving consideration to the question of a memorial to the men from Berrigan who have given their services in the cause of freedom, and the installation of a swimming pool has found favour in all quarters where it has been mentioned.
