Mid Clare Brigade Commemoration Committee Plans Centenary Events

On Morning Focus today, Mary Crawford, Chairperson of Mid-Clare Brigade Commemoration Committee joined us on-air ahead of a planning meeting taking place this Tuesday (14 Jan).

There was a lot of focus on commemorations in the past week, as the controversial RIC commemoration was planned – and then dropped – following an outcry from the public.

The Mid Clare Brigade Commemoration Committee are planning their events for this year, which will include the death of Martin Devitt in Inagh, the Rineen ambush and reprisals and the Moanreal ambush – among other events. The role of women will also be recognised – and the Committee are seeking input from the public ahead of their first event next month.
