The 99th commemoration of the murder of Patrick Tierney and Sean O’Carroll in Ardee in 1920 will take place on Sunday December 1.

There will be a march from the church after noon mass to the memorial across the road.

It is a non-political event and the ONE will provide a colour party.

All are welcome to come along and learn more about the two men.

Two streets in the town are named in their honour.
