DRC Collins/Griffith Weekend

The annual Dublin Regional Council Collins/Griffith weekend will take place this year on the weekend of the 17th - 18th of August.
This weekend is a very special event which commemorates the lives and deaths of two pivotal figures in the struggle for independence, and the initial building of a free and independent Ireland.

Michael Collins and Arthur Griffith, through their hard and dedicated work, ensured that Ireland would see itself a free nation, united and strong enough to stand on its own two feet in the world. From their work in the first Dail and during the war of independence, to the difficult negotiations in London which would return the first treaty guaranteeing an autonomous Ireland which could govern itself, both men proved themselves worthy of remembrance. These men hold a special place within the hearts of many members of Fine Gael and we celebrate their lives and achievements on this weekend.

Events will start off with a YFG memebrs social at 7pm on the Saturday (16th) at McGrattan's on Fitzwilliam Lane with platters and drinks. Then on Sunday morning (17th) there is a Mass which takes place at St Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road at 10.30am. It is then followed by the annual Collins/Griffith commemoration at the grave of Michael Collins in Glasnevin Cemetery at 12 noon. The oration this year will be given by Dr David Murphy of NUI Maynooth. It is set to be an engaging weekend of events which mark the significance of two enormous figures in Irish history, and we sincerely hope to see you all there.
