Unveiling 1916 Commemorative Plaque Again!

Image
In 1949 my Grandfather Séamus Ó Murchadha unveiled a plaque to commemorate those that served under and with him in the 1916 Rising against the British Empire.
He was Captain of the 4th Battalion stationed at Marrowbone Lane Distillery and served under Éamon Ceannt.

This plaque went missing and turned up two years ago in the City West Hotel. It is now residing in Galway City Museum.

Séamus Ó Murchadha's daughter Gráinne Uí Néill (now 96) unveiled the found plaque at Galway Museum on September 27- 2018
