Join us in Granard to mark the centenary of the death of Michael Collins.

Celebrate the life and times of Michael and learn of his great love for this place - hometown to his fiancée Miss Kitty Kiernan. Come in 1920's dress & view the Ford Model T that transported Collins around the highways and byways of Longford.

Members of the Defence Forces and Longford Pipe Band will march through Granard and gather for a flag raising ceremony at Knights and Conquests Heritage Centre at 3pm.

The exhibition centre will be open throughout the day, with some very special items relating to the Michael Collins and Kitty Kiernan love story on display.
