ARCO members, along with their families, are invited to attend to honour old friends and comrades. On that Saturday 1 Artillery Regiment, Collins Barracks, Cork and Naval Service, Haulbowline, Cork will provide the Ceremonial Military Guard.

The National Memorial was unveiled by President Mary McAleese in November 2008. It is a place of contemplation and remembrance where families, relatives and members of the public can reflect on the sacrifice these soldiers, sailors, airmen and airwomen have made for this State.
