A minute silence will be held at Piercestown N.S. tomorrow Fri 25th Sept. to honour those who suffered loss in the Great Famine of 1845-1852.
This reminds the children of the suffering and experiences endured by our ancestors.
We are also asked to reflect and think of those in the world suffering from famine and poverty today.
This initiative will be held in many schools nation wide and is organised by the Dept. of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
