The People's Flag - The Story of the Tricolour



The Irish Independent, in partnership with the Thomas F Meagher Foundation will once again publish The People’s Flag.

When he first raised the tri-colour in 1848, Thomas Meagher created a symbol to unite our island in peace, and 2017 marks the 150 anniversary of this extraordinary man’s death.

In this Thursday’s Irish Independent, don’t miss this special supplement dedicated to the remarkable story of our national flag, in partnership with the Thomas Meagher Foundation’s Flag Day on March 16th.

Read about the unique honour Ireland will receive in Washington this year, the worldwide reach of the tri-colour and so much more.

Only in Thursday’s Irish Independent.

Before you make up your mind, open it.
