Expressions of interest sought to attend the National Civil War Ceremony, Dublin


On Sunday the 28th of May a formal ceremony for a healing moment of reconciliation, remembering everyone who lost their lives in the Civil War, is being organised by the Department of the Taoiseach and will take place in the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin.  The event will be televised from this outdoor location.


The Department of the Taoiseach wishes to ensure that some of the close relatives of those directly impacted by the Civil War have an opportunity to attend this national ceremony. Due to capacity constraints the Department of the Taoiseach have proposed a maximum of 5 relatives to attend from each Local Authority area.  


The expressions of interest applications are intended for close relatives of the families most affected by local events. There are only 5 places available for Offaly.


Anyone wishing to submit an expression of interest should email with their name and postal address along with details of their family connection to the Civil War in Offaly.


Closing date for expressions of interest is Tuesday 25th April 2023 at 3pm.


Please note if the expressions of interest exceed the 5 places available, names will be chosen at random.
