For several years the All-Ireland Cultural Society has laid a floral wreath at the Oregon Famine Memorial Monument on Memorial Day. The walk to the monument has been accompanied by a piper. This year it will be Tim Birr. Jim O’Connell and JJ Grealish will present readings to remember our ancestors who died in the Famine.
We encourage all members, their families, and others of Irish descent to attend this beautiful ceremony. This will take place on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th. We will assemble at 9 a.m. near the Famine Memorial in Mt. Calvary Cemetery (click for directions) at the intersection of W. Burnside and SW Skyline. You can’t miss it! The monument itself is a 13-foot sandstone Celtic cross.
Hope to see you there!
