First we'll be hearing from Tom Stokes, Tom will be giving a lecture on the Asgard Gunrunning and the tragic circumstances that unfolded on Bachelors Walk that faithful evening. Which seen the Kings Own Scottish Borderers murder three unarmed civilians with a fourth dying days later from bayonet wounds.

Those who lost their lives were Patrick Quinn, Mary Duffy, James Brennan and Sylvester Pidgeon dying of bayonet wounds. The Memorial Plaque will be unveiled on the centenary anniversary later this year on the new Boardwalk running along Bachelors Walk.

Music is by Pól Mac Adaim and guests, with DJ till early morning. Musicians, Singers, Poets and entertainers are welcome to come along and join in.

Proceeds raised on the night will go towards covering the cost of the Memorial Plaque with all remaining funds donated to the National Graves Association for the redevelopment of St. Paul's Republican Plot Glasnevin.

Doors from 8pm till late, with a full late bar.

Hi John H. Mallory !

Best of luck with your endeavour re a plaque for the victims of that massacre on the quays in Dublin in 1914 - I gave it a mention in a recent blog post (see the 'Related Link' , below) : 'The Brits were by now near breaking-point ; they were more accustomed to being feared or, at best , ignored , by the public , and were seething with rage now that they were being laughed at by them . An Officer in charge felt the same, and he ordered one line of his men (approximately twenty soldiers) to halt and turn to face the jeering crowd ; when the soldiers had done as commanded , he instructed them to "ready weapons" and fire on the crowd , if he so ordered. It is not clear whether the order to fire was given or not but , regardless , the Brits did open fire - the people on the footpaths - men , women and children - were easy targets....'

Again, JHM, best of luck with the fundraiser.
