Remembrance Day Commemoration 2014
Tuesday 11th November
In 2008, Glasnevin Trust and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission set about a task of marking previously unmarked graves in Glasnevin Cemetery of World War I and World War II graves of soldiers, sailors, air men and women. This task is now complete and in addition, 104 headstones or Gallipoli markers have been placed on family graves wherein the remains the fallen lie.
In addition, the Trust along with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission have relocated World War I and World War II commemorative screen walls from the Prospect Gate area to a more prominent location adjacent to the new ceremonial plaza.
To mark the completion of the joint effort, Glasnevin Trust Chairman, John Green and members of Glasnevin Trust will participate in wreath laying ceremony to commemorate Armistice Day in Glasnevin Cemetery.
Wreath laying will take place at the CWGC Screen Walls & Cross of Sacrifice with proceedings taking place from 12.45pm until 2pm. Followed by a lecture in the Museum's Prospect Gallery covering Ireland's role in the two world wars.
Please note, Glasnevin Cemetery Museum will close at 12pm and the Tower café will be open as normal.
