Once more, I've relied on my friend, Ann Walsh, to supply me with some pictures from the official unveiling, on Easter Saturday, of the 1916 centenary memorial, located in a small landscaped area adjacent to the roundabout at Malcomson Square. The memorial consists of a simple reproduction of the 1916 Proclamation of the Irish Republic on black marble. A flagpole, for the national flag, has been erected beside the memorial. Obviously, the site will be used on the occasion of important national events, and will, hopefully, be treated with the respect it deserves. Congratulations to the organisers, Portlaw Tidy Towns Group, and all others concerned.
