Decade of Centenaries
A Mayo Commemoration Committee was established in 2013 to develop a Commemoration Strategy for the period 2013 to 2023.
The CentenaryMayo.ie website continues to be updated with material relevant to the period. We are working on an ongoing basis with historical and heritage societies and relevant communities in the county to assist them to develop local commemorative events.
A programme of events was held in 2016 to mark the events of 1916 in Mayo, Click image below for more information.
Decade of Centenaries Grant 2021
Mayo County Council is inviting applications for funding under The Decade of Centenaries Grant 2021. The aim of this commemorative funding is to ensure that events are remembered at community level in a respectful, measured, inclusive and non-partisan manner that recognises the differing perspectives on our shared history. Mayo County Council is seeking applications from community groups, historical and commemorative groups and tidy towns groups who wish to commemorate events which happened in Mayo during 1921.
Closing date Wednesday March 31st 2021 at 5pm
