The 2014 Robert Emmet Memorial event will take place at 2pm on Saturday the 20th of September at St. Catherine’s Church on Thomas Street in Dublin 8.
There will be a lecture by Cllr. Mary Hanafin and all are welcome to this free event which also remembers all those who fought alongside Robert Emmet in the 1803 Rebellion.
Each year I remember my ancestor James Byrne who is commemorated on a plaque on the wall of St. Catherine’s church with others who gave their life alongside Robert Emmet in the ill-fated rebellion of 1803.
Each year, Frank Connolly of the Emmet and Devlin Society organises a fantastic event and interesting lecture for enthusiasts of Irish history. We hope to see members of Finte O’Broin at this important event in our calander.
