Last Saturday, members of Fermoy based Post 25 (Irish United Nations Veterans’ Association) held their annual remembrance Mass and wreath laying ceremony in Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, Fermoy.

This attractive church which is situated in the grounds of the old aerodrome was packed to capacity for the occasion.

It was an especially poignant occasion for Anne McElligott-O’Connor whose father, Joseph McElligott lost his life while on manoeuvres in Fermoy during The Emergency.
