To honor the brave men & women of St. Margaret’s & Fingal who fought in 1916 and in the war of Independence, following 11am mass at St. Margaret’s church, a parade will commence at St. Margaret’s Graveyard led by the colour party of Fingal Old IRA Commemorative Society 1916 – 1921 & Black Raven Pipe Band to the St. Margaret’s GAA grounds.
Once at the grounds, there’ll be a reading of the Proclamation followed by the raising of the colors. Refreshments afterwards. All welcome to this truly historical event.
In the lead up to this event, we’ll be publishing a ‘Remembering our Past’ series of articles from newspaper archives and various sources to discover how our community and club here in St. Margarets has evolved over the years.
