Asgard 1916 Society are set to host a commemorative event to remember the landing of ‘The Asgard’, a yacht owned by Erskine Childers on 26th April 1914, with 1,000 Mauser rifles and ammunition onboard.

‘The Asgard’ arrived in Ireland on 26th April 1914

The weaponry would in time be used in the Easter Rising two years later.

 

Subsequent and in response to the landings, which were supervised by the then Irish Volunteers and assisted by Na Fianna Éireann, the British Army killed four unarmed civilians at Bachelor’s Walk in the city. The victims will also be remembered on the day and as part of the commemoration.

 

Join us at the East Pier in Howth on Saturday the 22nd of July at 2pm, in tribute to those who landed the Asgard and to the victims of Bachelor’s Walk. Wreaths will be laid and guest speakers from the 1916 Societies will address the gathering. A Colour Party in period dress and Republican Flute Band will also be in attendance for what is sure to be a fitting commemoration.

 

Refreshments and traditional Irish music in O’Connell’s Bar at the Est. Pier Howth after the commemoration, all are welcome.

 

As allways this is a non-party political event and family friendly.

Green Brigade Anti-discrimination Tournament 2017.

Saturday 17th June 2017 will see the Green Brigade’s Annual Anti-discrimination Tournament take place at James McGrory Park in Glasgow. 
We’d like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to attend what is always a great day for participants and spectators alike. 
This year, the 24 teams will compete for what will now be called The Clinton Pringle Trophy, named in memory of Clinton who sadly died at the age of just 3 years old after being ran over by a van last June.
Clinton’s parents have decided to set up a charity in his memory, The Clinton Pringle Project. After installing a garden planter area and a bespoke wooden play den at the nursery he attended, it gave them the idea that they could help other families who had lost healthy children suddenly by installing similar educational or play structures in their particular communities, which would also act as a practical memory to their child.
We continue to support Clinton’s family with this initiative and hope that by naming the Trophy after him, it will go some way to raising further awareness for what is a hugely worthwhile cause as well as being our own way of honouring and remembering a special wee lad. 
Last year was our first visit to James McGrory Park, and it was a huge success. We hope that 2017 will be bigger and better than ever, and we’d encourage you to bring family and friends to what is always a memorable day in the name of anti-discrimination.
