Launching the Versailles Programme – Remembering Leitrim’s WW1 Dead
March 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Versailles Programme: Remembering Leitrim’s WW1 Dead launches with ‘The Poppy and The Lily’ – a frank and insightful conversation about a sometimes challenging subject. Philip Orr and Joe Austin explore and discuss the reasons for wearing of the poppy or the lily.
Thurs 21 Mar 7pm The Bush Hotel Carrick-on-Shannon. RSVP LeitrimCommemoration@gmail.com.
The Versailles Programme will explore the social history of Leitrim and its people a century ago, remembering the bravery, the challenges and the memories of those affected – both at home and abroad – via diverse series of community activities, events and field trips.
This project is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
