It was a great day in the Golden State as the Orange County and Long Beach Divisions  of the Ancient Order of Hibernians held a joint commemoration of the 1916 Easter Rising. on  March 26, 2016 at the VFW Hall in Anaheim, California.

More than 100 members of the community responded to the Hibernian invitation to join us for songs, speeches and commentary on the impact of the 1916 Rising on the freedom of Ireland.

Brother Terry McCarthy led the procession of the flags while the 3rd West Cork Brigade re-enactment group brought up the rear and stood in respect for the recitals and songs.

After the ceremony, all were invited to join in food, song and good craic led by our own minstrel, Eammonn Knuff who kept the spirit moving with rousing Irish rebel songs. The day was a moving and rousing success, a testament to how far Ireland has come in their quest for freedom as well as a stark reminder of how far away independence sometimes seems.
