Hi!
Both events were held today, as advertised, and fitting tributes were paid by Na Fianna Éireann to those who 'done their bit' in Howth (and Kilcoole in Wicklow) on 26th July 1914 and to those who were targeted by British troops on Bachelors Walk on that same day . A full report on both events will be published in the August 2014 issue of the 'Saoirse' monthly newspaper (which goes to print on Wednesday 6th of that month) and some pics from today can be viewed on the 'Related Link' , below.

Thanks,
Sharon.
