The people of Araglin will recall an important historical event on Saturday, April 27 with a re-enactment of the raid on Araglin R.I.C. Barracks in 1919.

Araglin, like a lot of rural areas, was heavily involved in this struggle with men and women joining a variety of nationalist movements in great numbers.
