The Clonfin Commemorations took place at the site outside Granard yesterday. 

 

 

 

Dozens gathered together to remember the members of the North Longford Flying Column who ambushed a group of Black and Tans that were en route to Granard in February 1921.  

Tributes were also paid to Thomas Ashe whose 100th anniversary occurs this year. 

Below are a selection of photos taken at the event.
