South Florida Commemoration

The South Florida commemoration is set for May 30, 2010. It is organized by Marie Smith and everybody is invited in order to remember the victims of the Great Famine (An Gorta Mor) who are buried in mass graves in Ireland and around the world. The Irish Government has requested that the Irish Diaspora honor these victims and promote events to bring awareness to this tragic watershed in Irish history, and to local and world hunger. The victims change but the hunger never ends. There was a huge attendance at this Mass last year and all remarked that the event was unique and very special – not to be missed and worth attending for sure.

Details:

  1. I for one plan to attend to honor my Irish ancestors and am looking forward to it. I am passing on the information to all my current and past classmates from the Lake Worth adult ed Irish language class.

  2. Hi – is there any thing planned for 2011/2012 – what other activities happen with the organization in South Florida?

    Thanks so much!
