1916  COMMEMORATION:  

​Jim Chawke​ wish​es to thank the people of Granagh for turning out in huge numbers for

​the​  1916 commemoration.    ​

Once again you have proven that the spirit of volunteerism is alive and well in the community.   ​  ​

Men women and children made a huge effort to dress in the costume of the time.   ​ ​

More than 200 people marched and lined the road from the old creamery, where the march began. ​  ​

The tri-colour was raised at the school,church and community centre and rend​itions of ​ 'A ​Nation once Again,   ​'Faith of our ​F​athers ​'​  and ​ ' ​' Amhr​á​n na BhFiann ​'​  could be heard ringing out across the parish. ​  ​

The proclamation was read aloud and an enactment of some of the events of 1916 took place in a packed community centre.   ​  ​

The entire evenings proceedings were recorded for posterity.   ​  ​

I hope that it will live long in the memory of those who took part and attended.
