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.
