Thank you to everyone who joined us on Sunday 20th March to remember the events of Easter 1916. Our local commemoration took place after our annual St Patrick’s Parade and featured a reading of Phoblacht na hEireann by journalist Paul Hughes, before members of two historical societies from Wexford and Kilkenny, performed their re-enactment. The occasion was concluded with a striking rendition of the Last Post by Bugler Ronan Corrigan.
It should go without saying that the following video contains scenes that some people may find upsetting. Viewer discretion is advised.
My thanks to Willie Forde of Balrath Photography for use of his photos.
