Willie Barron laid wreath in Friary Street

Last year The Gairdín an Ghorta Historical Society had a very successful commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the attack and capture of the RIC Barracks in Hugginstown.

On the 101st anniversary of the attack a wreath was laid at the plaque in Hugginstown in honour and memory of the great people who fought for our Independence in Hugginstown village on March 8, 1920.

Remembered too were the men from Threecastles, Captain Thomas Hennessy and Michael Dermody NCO who died in the Friary Street, Kilkenny City Ambush 100 years ago.
A wreath was also laid in Friary Street.
Delighted to honour the memories of warriors of another time were Willie Barron and his fellow devotees in South Kilkenny.
