EASTER MONDAY MONUMENT

Each year the Monday after Easter Sunday there is a ceremony to mark the Easter Uprising in 1916.

Rededicated in 2009 and restored with a new 32 string Irish Harp capstone.

  • The Irish Monument for EASTER MONDAY MEMORIAL in Nassau County.The Irish Monument Committee, comprised of representatives of The Ancient Order of Hibernians; Irish American Society of Nassau, Suffolk and Queens; Irish Cultural Society, Garden City; Irish Northern Aid; Police Emerald Society, Nassau County Chapter; The Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick on Long Island; and Irish Americans in Government and a grant from the Republic of Ireland, have united for the purpose of refurbishing and finishing the Easter Monday Commemoration Monument immediately south of the Nassau County Courthouse in Mineola, New York.The Monument, first dedicated in 1979 as a result of the efforts of Francis Purcell, Denis Dillon, Peter King and many others in the Irish community, was last refurbished in 1993 with funds donated by the Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick on Long Island. The Monument, which honors the memory of those who have struggled for human dignity, human rights and Irish unity, commemorates the Easter Rising of 1916. Wind and weather have taken their course and the Monument was in need of refurbishing, repair, as well as the installation of the top of the Monument.
