On Sunday 1st May at 9am on the New Haven Green, we will celebrate Mass for Peace and an Irish Flag Raising to commemorate the 95th anniversary of the Easter Uprising and the 30th anniversary of the Hunger Strike at Long Kesh Prison. Following the Mass there will be a ceremony to honour the Patriots of 1916 and the Hunger Strikers.
This annual public ceremony serves as a reminder to all ethnic groups that freedom and liberty carry a high price. Local honourees are remembered in a roll call and the original "Proclamation of Freedom" will be read. Police and Fire Emerald Societies, as well as state and local political officials, are encouraged to attend. Please call for arrangements.
For information about the Mass/ceremony, please call Joe Lynch at 203-483-4574.
