The National Irish Freedom Committee with news of an upcoming event.
Flannery Award Presentation
Sunday, April 28, 2019
9:30 am Woodlawn Cemetery
10:30 Keane’s Restaurant
On the closest Sunday to the date of the April 24, 1916 Easter Rising, CnSN/NIFC will commence its 2019 Easter Commemoration at the grave of CnSN/NIFC co-founder and unrepentant Fenian, Joe Stynes, in Woodlawn Cemetery, Webster Ave. and 233rd St., Bronx, NY 10470, at 10:00am. Grave location: Rose Hill Plot, North Border Rd., corner of Elder Ave. Directions to and within the cemetery are printed on the back of this page. Please feel free to bring your family and friends. This year’s theme is the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence at the first Dáil Éireann.
The commemoration will begin at 9:30 sharp.
An Irish brunch buffet will follow at 10:30 at Keane’s Bar and Restaurant, 4340 Katonah Avenue, Bronx, NY 10470. Keane’s is less than ½ mile from the cemetery. Tickets are $25 and are available at the door. Children under 14 are free.
At Keane’s we will present the 2019 Michael and Pearl Flannery Spirit of Freedom Award to Gary Delaney. A souvenir journal is being produced to mark the event. It is an ideal opportunity to place a testimonial ad for our honoree, or as a memorial ad for the many activists and friends who, after having faithfully done their part for Irish freedom have passed on. By placing an ad acknowledging their contributions, you will help insure that they are remembered and honored as sons and daughters of Irish Freedom. The closing date for ads is April 10th. We hope you will join us at the restaurant for good food and fellowship.
