Welcome for Events to Commemorate MacSwiney and MacCurtain
Sinn Féin councillor Thomas Gould has congratulated council officials and staff on the programme of events put together to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the deaths of Lord Mayors Terence MacSwiney and Tomás MacCurtain.
Cllr Gould said:
“Some months ago the council agreed, on foot of a motion from myself, that it should put together a programme of events to mark the 90th anniversary of the deaths of Terence MacSwiney and Tomás MacCurtain – two of the greatest names in Ireland’s struggle for freedom, who were natives of our city and who held its highest office.”
“Last night the council heard excerpts from the minutes of council meetings in 1920, and today there is an exhibition in City Hall commemorating the life and times of MacSwiney and MacCurtain. A commemorative mass will take place in the North Cathedral on Sunday.”
”I would like to thank all involved in organising these events and making them a fitting commemoration of two great Irishmen.”
