Commemorative plaque to Mac Diarmada in Dowra

A Commemorative Plaque to Sean MacDiarmada was unveiledon Monday morning, July 25 near Dowra, in Co Cavan.

The plaque was unveiled at the former Tullynamoyle National School, to commemorate that Sean MacDiarmada attended the school in 1904 to learn Irish under the principal Patrick McGauran, a renowned Irish speaker.
