Gralton Labour History Commemorative Committee

Formal unveiling of a monument to the memory of the Leitrim Socialist, Jimmy Gralton, on the site of Gralton’s “Pearse Connolly Hall” at Effrinagh, Co. Leitrim, on Saturday 3rd of September 2016.

The committee is extremely pleased that the President of Ireland Mr Michael D. Higgins has accepted the invitation to perform the unveiling. Proceedings will commence promptly at 11.00.a.m. on Saturday morning and those planning to attend are advised to arrive early as parking and traffic restrictions will be in place.

(Because of the narrow road network and lack of parking places attendees may have to walk some distance to reach the site) The 4 mile stretch of road from the N4 at Drumsna to Effrinagh (Effernagh) will be signposted.

The formal unveiling will be followed by a number of events throughout the day (and also on Sunday) including political contributions, music, song and dance.
