The Asgard 1916 Society are set to host a commemorative event to remember the landing of 'The Asgard', a yacht owned by Erskine Childers which arrived at Howth, Dublin, on 26th April 1914, with 1,000 Mauser rifles and ammunition on board. 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 always this is a non-party political event and family friendly.

What's that naval ship in the background and what date? Irish Naval Service Flower Class corvet, 1950s my guess.

I am not going to reprint your horrible comments on Varadkar and Coveney.

With your biased attitude, what kind of "impartial"posts will appear under your name when Varadkar/Coveney have done some months as Taoiseach?

You're building up a head of steam well in advance and way above the Speed Limit. But thanks for warning us to beware of what's to come! Unacceptable.

The Irish people must have been forever grateful to the
English traitor, Childers.

Oh wait.....

You omitted to mention where you'll be laying the non-party-political, family friendly wreaths to commemorate the people killed by those Mauser rifles and ammo.
