THE annual Easter Commemoration will take place at the monument situated in the Town Square on Easter Sunday at 12.30pm.
This is the 86th anniversary of the commemoration with the Millstreet National Monument Committee co-ordinating the staging. Guest speaker is Brian O'Rourke from Rylane. The programme will include a recital by Millstreet Pipe Band.
Presiding Chairman Jerry Lehane welcomes the support of the public to the ceremony.
"When the Irish national teams are playing anywhere in the world, the green jersey and the national flag are to be seen.
"Alas when we honour our patriots without whom we would not have a flag, green is seldom seen. Lets show what the wearing of the green really means on Easter Sunday," he said.
