Launch of annual Liverpool Easter Lily Campaign


Last Sunday saw the launch the annual Easter Lily campaign at St Michaels Irish Centre Liverpool. The Easter Lily is worn to remember the men and women volunteers of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin and those who have died fighting for Irish freedom down the ages.

Cairde na hEireann Liverpool promotes the wearing of the Lily as a means of showing awareness of the sacrifices made by Irish women and men to the achievement of Irish independence and in particular to remember with pride the contribution the Liverpool Irish community has made towards that aim.
