The 2016 Veterans’ Day takes place on Saturday, 10th September in McKee Barracks, Dublin.
Veterans’ Day reaches out to honour retired members of the Defence Forces and all Veterans have been invited. The Minister for Defence, the Chief of Staff and the General Staff will be in attendance.
A shuttle bus service will be provided for Veterans from Busáras, and from Heuston and Connolly Railway Stations, to McKee Barracks (and return) beginning at 1030hrs.
Guests will have access to McKee Barracks from 1100hrs and parking will be available.
A Ceremonial Parade, presided over by the Minister for Defence, will take place at 1400hrs. ARCOIreland, along with the other veterans’ organisations, has been invited to provide a Representative Body to participate in the ceremony. This will consist of a short multi denominational religious service along with the laying of wreaths to honour fallen comrades.
Refreshments will be served from 1430hrs and a wide range of Military Displays will be on view from 1530hrs.
We ask that as many ARCOIreland members as possible attend this event and in particular participate in the parade.
We look forward to seeing you in McKee Barracks on the day.
