All local authorities have been asked to nominate a limited number of relatives to attend a formal ceremony for a healing moment of reconciliation, remembering everyone who lost their lives in the Civil War.
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 heritage@Kilkennycoco.ie (or phone 056 779 4923) indicating your interest and outlining your connection to an individual(s) directly impacted by the Civil War from County Kilkenny.
The deadline for receipt of expressions of interest is Wednesday 3rd May at 4pm.
Please note that the memorial event will be televised.
