Kinsale History Society Flag Raising Ceremony

September 23, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

The Kinsale History Society is having a flag raising ceremony on Saturday, 23rd September 2017 to mark the landing of the Spanish in September, 1601 and the Battle of Kinsale in December.

This will begin at the Fort Hill at 3:30 p.m. for the raising of the Spanish flag and the raising of the Irish flag will take place at the battle site at Millwater at 4.00 p.m. This will be followed by a short visit to Desmond Castle, the Spanish Headquarters in 1601, followed by refreshments at Hamlets.

We hope that you will be able to join us to support our campaign to highlight the importance of the Battle of Kinsale in national and international affairs by marking the sites associated with 1601 and working to create an exhibition space in the Regional Museum, projects which have the possibilities of generating extra tourism in Kinsale.
