This outdoor event, being hosted by the Department of the Taoiseach, will take place in the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin on Sunday the 28th of May 2023.

Those interested are advised to email  or phone 057 8664000 indicating their interest and outlining their connection to an individual(s) directly impacted by the Civil War from County Laois.

The deadline for receipt of expressions of interest is Tuesday 2nd of May 2023 at 5pm.
