Since you pushed the appeal over our fundraising target late last year, the committee have been working on plans for the installation and unveiling of the memorial.
Our final planning application is in and we had hoped to make an announcement soon about an unveiling celebration in May.
Sadly, due to the risks posed by the current coronavirus pandemic, it will not be possible for us to hold this celebration as soon as we would have liked. Work on the memorial is progressing and as soon as it’s safe to do so, we intend to hold a community celebration marking this significant milestone for Scotland’s Irish community.
In the meantime, please do what you can to keep yourself and your community safe, and stay up to date with the latest NHS advice.
We are building it.
