This heritage event will remember the Volunteers of D Company - Labasheeda, 1st Battalion, West Clare Brigade, Irish Republican Army 1916-1921 and their comrades in the 1st Battalion, West Clare Brigade Cumann na mBan.
We will remember the lives of the vice-commandant of the First Battalion of the West Clare Brigade Michael Falahee and the Patriot Priest Rev. P.K Hayes, C.C. for the lion-like way he faced Auxiliaries and Black and Tans and protected the people of Labasheeda from their savagery. A piper will play as relatives march behind five flags to Labasheeda Quay where a plaque will be unveiled to remember all the people from the Labasheeda area who were part of the West Clare Brigade. The proclamation will be read and wreaths will be laid before a roll call of members based on information from the Bureau of Military History. The piper end the ceremony with Amhrán Na bhFiann.
All information on this event will be uploaded to the Labasheeda History and Heritage Facebook page during National Heritage Week.
