Public invited to attend Easter Monday commemoration

, Carr

BRIAN Cawley, chairperson of Tyrone National Graves, has invited the public to the annual Tyrone National Graves Association County Commemoration in Carrickmore on Easter Monday at 3pm. Mr Cawley said, “I look forward to seeing large crowds this year again in Carrickmore at our annual County Commemoration. Everyone is welcome and Tyrone National Graves Association is privileged to host this event every year. The parade begins at 3pm and makes its way to our Garden of Remembrance where the main commemoration will take place. I encourage everyone to also attend the local commemorations taking place over Easter.

“This year marks the 102nd anniversary of the Easter Rising and it is important we remember all those, throughout the generations, who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Once again, we extend our continued sympathy and solidarity to the families of all Tyrone’s republican dead. The sacrifice made by Ireland’s Patriot Dead must always be remembered. I would urge you all to wear your Easter Lily with pride in their memory. “Tyrone National Graves Association is an independent body. We look after and tend to the graves of those Tyrone republicans who made the ultimate sacrifice in the fight to free Ireland from British rule. It is an honourable and proud responsibility,” he continued.

“Sadly earlier this year the Republican Plot in Edendork was vandalised. A plaque from the family of Volunteer Paddy Kelly was stolen causing tremendous hurt and distress. Tyrone National
Graves Association has endeavoured to fix the damage. Thankfully, work will be completed in time for the family commemoration in Edendork on Easter Sunday morning. “Tyrone National Graves Association is a voluntary organisation reliant on the undying support of the people of Tyrone who year after year make donations to help us carry out our work. We are eternally grateful for this support. “We look forward to your continued support in the future as we keep alive the memory of all our Patriot Dead.”
