Jim Chawke wishes 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 renditions of 'A Nation once Again, 'Faith of our Fathers ' and ' ' Amhrán 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.
