Each year at 12:00 noon, on the Monday following Easter, a commemoration ceremony is held to remember the Irish Easter Rising of 1916 and to honor the memory of those who have struggled for human dignity, human rights, and Irish unity.

 

At this year’s commemoration ceremony, Nassau County Legislator Tom McKevitt joined Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello and other local elected officials and community members in honoring those who have advanced the causes of peace with justice in a united Ireland. Throughout the commemoration, prominent members of the Irish community assembled with pipers and poets to play tribute to this historical event.
