There is to be a commemoration at the grave followed by a display of information in the parish hall.
Then this morning’s Irish Examiner had further details of the Peter O’Neill-Crowley Commemoration Weekend including a talk at 5.30 at County Hall on Thursday and commemoration at Kilclooney on Sunday.
I first heard of Peter O’Neill-Crowley only a few years back when I read the name of the bridge near Victoria Cross.
Where Bridges Stand by Antóin O’Callaghan advises that the construction of the bridge commenced in 1820; it was named the George IV Bridge; in 1907 Cork Corporation agreed to change name; but, this change did not happen for a few years. The plaque on the bridge says 1911.
Since first spotting the name on the bridge, his name has appeared on a few plaques and memorials that I have seen.
With the 150th anniversary of his death coming up, I thought it appropriate to the plaques together.
