Who Are We?

The original Commemoration Committee started in October 1921 when Brigadier Dinny Lacey gathered all eight battalions of the Third Tipperary Brigade in Kilfeacle graveyard to commemorate the first anniversary of Seán Treacy’s death. That began a tradition which was continued by the Brigade’s members for many years. However time and death took its toll on celebrating these occasions .

The tradition was reinvigorated by patriotic minded people and the Committee was expanded to include people who hadn’t been active, or even born, during the War of Independence. It assumed its current form shortly after the golden jubilee of 1916 in 1966.

What makes our committee unique is the fact that we are independent, non-sectarian, non-party political, and we make no distinction between pro or anti Treaty Volunteers. Many relations and descendants of those who were active in the Brigade are members of this committee.
