A World War I memorial event will be held in Leighlinbridge on Sunday, November 11. 

A special memorial event commemorating those from Carlow who gave their lives in World War I will take place in the Memorial Garden. 

November 11 at 11:00am marks the centenary of the Armistice and end of World War I.

The event will focus on the hundreds of Carlow men and women who died in the conflict and who are remembered by name on the All-County Memorial in Leighlinbridge.

The monument was erected and unveiled in 2002 following a considerable amount of work and research by Martin Nevin, John Kenna and others and at the time was the first All-County memorial of its kind in Ireland.

Coordinated by Carlow County Council Centenary Committee the ceremony will commence at 10.50am and will include the raising of the Irish flag, minutes silence, prayers of remembrance, reading aloud the names of those who died and the laying of official wreaths.

No charge for admission and all are welcome.
