1916 Commemoration in Portarlington
Are you interested in forming a 1916 Commemoration Committee in Portarlington? Other towns in Laois such as Portlaoise, Mountmellick, Abbeyleix and Spink have local committees and are arranging events to commemorate 1916. Portarlington has no formal committee set up . A public meeting will be called later to formally discuss the setting up of the committee and the type of events people would prefer. Some towns are putting on plays, garden of remembrance, plaques, memorials etc. Some will highlight local connections to those who took part in the Rising etc. If you are interested please contact the PCDA/Loveport Office on 085- 8568801 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
