The annual National General Liam Lynch Memorial Commemoration takes place on Sunday July 28 at 2.30pm at the splendid round tower monument on the Knockmealdown mountain.

The place marks the spot where the chief of staff of the Irish Republican Army was fatally wounded in the Civil War on the morning of April 10, 1923. Liam Lynch was a man who dedicated his life to his country as a soldier and a patriot, committed to the Irish nation.

This year of the gathering will bring together more closely the families of those who answered Ireland’s call, to celebrate all who served their country.

Author and historian Tim Horgan of Tralee will deliver the oration at the commemoration ceremony, which is independent of any and all political groups and associations. The Liam Lynch National Memorial Association will return after the Commemoration for a chat, a cup of tea and a sing-song in Goatenbridge.
