UNVEILING A PLAQUE TO CAPTAIN SEAN HEUSTON IRISH VOLUNTEERS

THE North Inner City Folklore Project is honouring Local man Irish Volunteer Captain Sean Heuston who was born in 1891 at Lower Gloucester Street now (Sean McDermott Street). Heuston was executed by a British firing squad in Kilmainham Gaol on the 8 May 1916 at the age of twenty-five years.

The event will open with a re-enactment of the hoisting of the Citizen Army flag at Liberty Hall in 1916 by James Connolly and a young fourteen girl from Gardiner Street Molly O’Reilly.

This will be recreated Easter Monday by the grandson of James Connolly, James Connolly-Herron, and Molly O’Reilly niece Ciara Gallagher. A colour party in the period uniforms of the Citizen Army and Cumann na mBan will accompany them.

The crowd will then parade to Lower Sean McDermott Street led by pipers and people carrying photographs of the leaders of the Easter Rising.

At 1pm, at Lower Sean McDermott Street facing Our Lady of Lourdes Church,
Constance Corcoran, daughter of Molly O’Reilly who’s, mother was a member of the City Hall garrison and Mrs Steenson, whose mother was a member of the GPO/Clery’s garrison will unveil the plaque to Sean Heuston.
Two children from area will lay a wreath’s at the spot.

After a lament by the pipers, there will be a 1916-1922 photographic exhibition, in a nearby community hall.
