Remembrance Sunday 2016

Posted by:

On Remembrance Sunday, Fr Martin Convey and Canon Andrea Wills officiated at a very solemn and reflective ceremony of Blessing and Commemoration at the recently erected Straide War Memorial. Despite the inclement weather, a sizeable crowd was in attendance. The Occasion proved to be a moving and poignant one for all those assembled. A special word of thanks to the Foxford Brass and Reed Band and to the Castlebar Concert and Marching band whose haunting performance of the Last Post helped focus the congregation’s thoughts on the fallen of all wars and the ultimate price they paid. The ceremony ended with a special blessing and commitment to peace. Thanks also to all those at the Michael Davitt Memorial Hall for providing refreshments after the ceremony. The Memorial is adjoining the Michael Davitt Museum grounds
