Remembrance ceremony for Inishowen's WWI Dead
The 2nd Annual Remembrance Ceremony for the Inishowen men and women
who died in World War I will be held on Sunday July 16th at 3pm
in Fort Dunree.
People from all over the north west will gather at Fort Dunree
to remember these from both the nationalist and unionist traditions
in Ireland who died during the First World War.
There are 200 men and women from the peninsula included in the
Inishowen Roll of Honour, who died during that war, which will be
read out and a joint religious service will be held. Music will
be by The Buncrana Accordion Band the Tullintrain Pipe Band, and
Dunree's own Tracey McRory.
As well as the Remembrance ceremony there will be a number of exhibitions
open to the public at Fort Dunree including an unique exhibition
of Trench Art from Belfast, which will be on display in the Republic
for the very first time.
A number of experts on the period will be there, on the day, to
help and assist people who may have memorabilia in their families
from that time and would like to find out more about it.
The organisers would like to invite everyone to come on the day
and in particular to hear from those of you who lost family members
and would like to participate in reading the Roll of Honour.
