Centenaries Group for North Derry

1 Mins read

A Centenaries Group for the north Co Derry area will have it’s first meeting on Monday 28th September at 7.30pm in Hands That Talk, Dungiven. The group called ‘Ciannacht & Craobh Centenaries Group’ has taken it’s name from the ancient kingdoms of the area and hopes to appeal to a wide cross section of the community for involvement in celebrating upcoming centenaries and in particular the centenary of the Easter Rising of 1916.

Speaking about the meeting, organiser Caoimhe Archibald said, “There is growing interest and appetite for events to celebrate the centenaries. The O’Donovan Rossa funeral re-enactment in Dublin at the beginning of August attracted many from the area to attend and since then there have been a lot of enquiries about celebrations locally to mark the centenaries.

“The group has been set up to provide a forum for discussion and to plan local events. We would encourage anyone with an interest, and from all groups and sections of the community: historical, sporting, language, musical etc, to come along and participate in the discussion or put forward suggestions.

“We are delighted to have Bartle D’Arcy the National Programme Director for Centenaries Commemorations for Sinn Féin to speak at the meeting. Bartle was behind the O’Donovan Rossa funeral re-enactment which was a fantastic event and other major events are planned in the coming months.
“It is very much an open invitation and everyone is welcome.” Crioch
