Event Over

28 October | 19:00 - 20:30

Skibbereen Heritage Centre view location


Skibbereen Arts Festival are organising a memorial event to commemorate all those who passed away locally during the pandemic and were unable to receive a proper funeral. 


The focus of the event is the reading of the names of those who have left us during this difficult time. Beginning at 7pm, it will consist of a candlelit procession through the town and culminate with readings, songs and music in the Fairfield. 

This will be a simple, respectful way to honour those who have passed, while commiserating with the families who were unable to have a traditional wake for their departed.

The event will commemorate anyone from Skibbereen and the surrounding hinterland so anyone within a 10 mile radius of town.

If you would like to have someone included in the commemoration then please email skibbereenmemorial@gmail.com with their name & address, the date they passed away, and a photograph.

Updates will appear over the next couple of weeks in local media, here and on our social media pages
