Meath County Council Seeking Expressions of Interest From Close Relatives For National Civil War Ceremony
Meath County Council is seeking expressions of interest from close relatives of those directly impacted by the Civil War from County Meath to attend a national memorial event.
All local authorities will nominate 5 relatives to attend a formal ceremony for a healing moment of reconciliation, remembering everyone who lost their lives in the Civil War. These invitations are particularly intended for close relatives of the families most affected by local events.
Where the expressions of interest exceed the places available, nominees will then be chosen by the local authority at random or to broadly reflect all sides of the Civil War debate.
This outdoor event, being hosted by the Department of the Taoiseach, will take place in the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin on Sunday the 28th of May 2023.
Those interested are advised to email firstname.lastname@example.org (or phone o46 9097374) indicating your interest and outlining your connection to an individual(s) directly impacted by the Civil War from County Meath.
The deadline for receipt of expressions of interest is Tuesday 25th April 2023 at 4pm.
Please note that the memorial event will be televised.
The Decade of Commemorations Programme for County Meath is managed by Meath County Council with the support of the Commemorations Unit of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Decade of Centenaries 2012-23 initiative.
