Join us for a stirring procession and resounding graveside commemoration of Colonel Thomas J Kelly and the 3 Bold Fenian Men who gave their lives for their beloved homeland - Allen, Larkin, and O'Brien - the Manchester Martyrs.
God Save Ireland!
Lest we forget.
Living historians welcome, especially US Civil War. Processionists will gather starting at 2:30pm near the buildings on the north side of the cemetery. Look for the pipers, color guard, and Civil War uniforms.
There will be commemorative coins, lapel pins, and other items available.
Afterwards, we will pilgrimage to McSorley's to raise a toast at the 1902 commemorative poster hanging on the back wall, then end the day at the Dead Rabbit.
