St Patrick’s Cathedral Remembrance Service to be Broadcast Live

By Lynn Glanville

St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin, will hold its annual Remembrance Service this Sunday, November 9, at 3.10 pm. This year for the first time, the service is being broadcast live on RTE television.

The President will be represented at the service by Colonel Brendan McAndrew, his Aide de Comp and the service will also be attended by representatives of the Defence Forces and many veterans and their families.

Remembrance Sunday is marked all over the country and as the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland, St Patrick’s in Dublin has taken on the role of remembrance since 1919.

The annual service features a wreath laying ceremony and this year the wreaths will be laid by Colonel McAndrew and Geoffrey Medcalf, MBE,
national Vice President of the Royal British Legion. They will lay their wreaths at the Tree of Remembrance which forms the centrepiece of the ‘Lives Remembered’ exhibition which is currently running at the cathedral.

In order to facilitate broadcasting, all those planning to attend the service must be seated by 2.45 pm.
