March 6, 2016 0

A great turnout at the Fingal County Council’s 1916 Memorabilia Day at the Bracken Court Hotel today. Historians, archivists and professional genealogists were on hand with exhibitions of photos, paraphernalia and screenings.   The Fingal Old IRA 1916-1921 Commemorative  Society presented an afternoon exploring the activities of the Fingal Volunteers  5th Battalion Dublin Brigade with actual film footage of the Funeral of Thomas Ashe and a Military Drill by Volunteer Members of the Society.

Balbriggan has a very rich heritage and it was great to see such a vast array of memorabilia on display.
