When Charles Stewart Parnell died on 6 October 1891, his funeral to Glasnevin cemetery was one of the largest seen in Ireland.

The ‘Ivy Day’ commemoration, which commenced the following year, has continued ever since, throughout conflict and pandemic,  one of the most enduring Irish commemorative events.

The Society marks the occasion with an annual lecture and wreath laying/oration at Glasnevin on/or about the Sunday closes to Parnell’s anniversary.

The 2021 ‘Ivy Day’ commemoration was held  on Sunday 3rd of  October amidst glorious sunshine. The annual  graveside oration was excellently delivered by Prof Daire Keogh.
