An event is to be held in Cashel, at the Bru Boru centre tomorrow evening at 7.30pm to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement. The event is organised by Fianna Fáil.
Guest speakers include former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, Dr. Martin Mansergh and Cllr. Briege MacOscar from Dublin. Master of Ceremonies is former Senator Labhras Ó Murchú.
The Good Friday Agreement was signed on 10 April 1998 ending three decades of violence, and establishing inclusive, democratic power sharing institutions.
2023 is also the 25th Anniversary of the State purchasing the Widow McCormack’s 1848 Warhouse in the Commons. The Famine Warhouse 1848, traditionally known as the Ballingarry Warhouse or The Widow McCormack’s House, is an Irish farmhouse famous as the site of a skirmish in the Young Irelander Rebellion of 1848, at which the Irish tricolour was flown for the first time. Today it houses a museum with exhibits on the Great Famine and mass emigration, the rebellion, the high treason trials and exile of the Young Ireland leaders in Australia and their escapes to the US.
Bertie Ahern, Dr. Martin Mansergh and Cllr. Briege MacOscar will visit the Warhouse on Tuesday, 26th September at 2.30pm. The public are invited and welcome to attend both events.
