Galway Sinn Féin to hold Easter Rising online commemoration

Main oration to be given by party's Galway West TD, Mairead Farrell

The 105th anniversary of the Easter Rising of 1916 will be commemorated online this year as last year by Galway Sinn Féin.

County Galway was the second largest uprising in Easter 1916, outside of Dublin, when about 700 volunteers mobilised under Liam Mellows.

The event takes place on the Galway West Sinn Féin Facebook page from 1pm on Easter Sunday, April 4. There will be a speech from SF Galway West TD Mairead Farrell and members of Galway SF will read the names from the Galway Roll of Honour, of Galway Republicans who died for an Irish Republic.
