The Ballyellis day was especially enjoyable. We left
Carnew and marched to the monument near where the battle took place, there we assembled
for the wreath laying. Afterwards we entered a nearby field which sloped down to a stream
and sloped up on the other side of the stream. This created a natural amphitheatre and was
an ideal setting for the well delivered pageant that we were treated to. This chronicled
the rising from start to finish and was appreciated by all.
