OFFALY100 Commemoration & Concert

20th March 2016

Candlelit Procession Tullamore Courthouse @ 5:45pm
Info: ASSEMBLE AT THE MONUMENT, COURTHOUSE, TULLAMORE
Together we remember the Offaly contribution towards Irish Independence by the raising of the Irish Flag, the laying of a wreath and the reading of the Proclamation. Led by a lone piper, at dusk we will proceed in a candlelit walk to Colmcille Street to the scene where, on 20th March 1916, an incident led to Padraig Pearse saying ‘A great deed was done last night at Tullamore, when blood was shed in defence of the Volunteers’ right to carry arms...’ The unveiling of a new flagstone to mark this location will take place and the piper will lead us on to the Church of Assumption.

Centenary Concert Church of the Assumption @ 7pm
Info: Featuring some of the best of Offaly’s musicians and headlined by Mundy and Donal Lunny, with Simon Casey, Seán Ryan, Olivia Burke, Diarmuid Guinan, Ruaile Buaile, Joe Maher and a host of choirs, bands and musicians including Birr Choral Society, members of Offaly Comhaltas, Eden Chorale, Danna Davis, Gerard Gillen, Offaly County Council Choir, Tullamore Pipe Band, Edenderry Rockers and St. Manchan's Youth Choir. Over 150 performers will raise the roof with some of the most iconic pieces of Irish music over the past 100 years. Punctuated by spoken word and poetry, this momentous concert, directed by Colin Hughes, is not to be missed.
