The town of Claremorris will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising on Easter Sunday, March 27th.

The event, which starts at 12 noon, will feature a reading of the proclamation, recitals of poetry, the laying of a wreath at the town’s memorial and the inaugural performance of a play, ‘A Great Consolation’ by John Corless.

CCR will broadcast this event on Sunday.  We will be on air, live from the Square with host Johnny Kirrane, from 12 noon until 2pm.
