The first official Easter Commemorations begin at 9.30am with the rising of the tri colour at the Siggerson Memorial, a monument to the men and women who fell during Easter Week 1916. Followed by a memorial at the graveside of Peader Kearney, a talented song writer who wrote the lyrics to The Soldiers Song 'Amhrán na bhFiann'.
