MEMORIAL TREE PLANTING


A Rememberance Service and Tree Planting Ceremony to honour fallen soldiers from the local area was held at the Dublin Institute on Sunday 9th November 2014 arranged by the Dublin History Group.

The District Council of Mallala Partenerships Grant, Australian Government's ANZAC Centenery Local Grants Program, Dublin History Group and local community donations provided the funding.

The criterior for inclusion in the Memorial Avenue were those that were named on local Honour Rolls. A further seven were also discovered by the Dublin History Group while researching the soldiers. Whilst it cannot be established why these few were not recorded on the honour rolls, they will be honoured within the new Memorial Garden at the Institute to be established later this year (2015).

The trees are well known for forming dense shade. They will grow to about 10 meters tall with a yellow flower in spring and an orange berry in summer.

BLOOMSDAY is a commemoration and celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce, during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set on 16th June 1904) are relived.

It is observed annually on 16th June in Dublin, Ireland and all around the world. Joyce chose this date as it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora. The name derives from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses.

On Saturday June 16th 2012, a group of Adelaide’s Irish community will travel by bus to Dublin, SA to perform readings from the book of ‘Ulysses’ in the Dublin Hotel and Institute, using multiple amateur performers. This event, performed in the Irish style of good times and high spirits, will be captured on a professional video and will be aired on early morning news in Dublin Ireland, and later released on you tube.

Arriving at Dublin around 3pm, the group will perform readings from the book in the hotel, then meander down the road to the Institute where supper consisting of soup, sandwiches and the obligatory ‘Guinness’ will be accompanied by songs and music followed by more readings from the book.
