IVY DAY

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

The ‘Ivy Day’ commemoration, which commenced the following year, has continued ever since and is 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 2019 ‘Ivy Day’ commemoration took place on Sunday 6th October, where the annual Parnell commemoration and graveside oration was delivered by Prof Margaret Kelleher, UCD.
