The late Thomas Ashe was commemorated with a dignity and pride that will be forever remembered in Ballinalee over the weekend.

This week, as the 100th anniversary of the revolutionary’s death is being commemorated and the centenary of his presence in north Longford marked, so it was fitting that last Saturday’s events coincided with his famous speech, orated in Ballinalee on July 22, 2017.
