The centenary of official ending of the Irish War of Independence will be marked with a low key commemoration service at the Garden of Remembrance tomorrow (Saturday) evening.

The war between the Irish Republican Army and The British Army was fought between January 11, 1919 and July 11, 1921.

Tomorrow’s event is organised by Senator Mark Daly and will be attended by elected members of Killarney Municipal District and other invited guests.

It will take place at the Garden of Remembrance outside Killarney Court House.

Members of Killarney Looking Good, the organisation that funded and created the garden, will also attend.

The occasion will be marked by a reading of the Proclamation from the 1916 Rising, which among other things declared Ireland a Republic: “We declare the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland and to the unfettered control of Irish destinies, to be sovereign and indefeasible”.

PERMANENT MONUMENT

Meanwhile Mayor of the Killarney Municipal District, Cllr Marie Moloney is calling for a permanent monument to be erected in memory of Hannah Carey who was the last person to die in the Civil War.

She was shot shortly before noon on July 11 while standing outside the Imperial Hotel (where the Killarney Towers Hotel now stands) on College St.

“We need to place some of sort of recognition to the last the last person to die [in the War of Independence],” she told Wednesday’s Killarney Municipal District meeting. “If not a standalone one on College St, then maybe something could be done in the Garden of Remembrance.”
