Remembering North King St.

Stoneybatter & Smithfield People’s History Project have a commemoration lined up later today. It’s to remember sixteen locals murdered by the South Staffordshire regiment on this very weekend one hundred years ago.

As they have it themselves:

“Join the local community at 2.30pm at Kavanagh’s Pub on Aughrim Street for a short march to North King Street where a plaque inscribed with the names of the 16 men and boys will be unveiled.

Relatives and descendants of the victims will be in attendance and the plaque will be unveiled by 82 year old Betty Ivers, relative of 16 year old William O’Neill.”

Up top you’ll find a song in their honor performed by O’Shea and Duffy.
