1916 Easter Uprising Memorial Rededication

Several Irish-American organizations, including the Nassau County Board of the AOH, the Irish-Americans in Government, the Irish American Society of Queens and Nassau, the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick and other groups formed a committee for the monument’s refurbishment almost two years ago, and today Phase One of the refurbishment project was completed and rededicated. The Irish government donated $20,000 to this project. It was a privately funded project sponsored by the Irish groups mentioned and others, as well as through fund raising events.
