The unveiling of a commemorative stone at Carnmore, the site of the engagement between the Castlegar and Claregalway Volunteers and the RIC resulting in the death of Constable Patrick Whelan, the only fatality of the Rising in County Galway.

Nochtfar cloch chomórtha ar an gCarn Mór. Ba san áit sin a throid Óglaigh an Chaisleáin Ghearr agus Bhaile Chláir in aghaidh Chonstáblacht Ríoga na hÉireann agus a maraíodh an Constábla Patrick Whelan. Ba eisean an t-aon duine a maraíodh le linn an Éirí Amach i gContae na Gaillimhe.

The unveiling of the commemorative stone will be followed by a wreath-laying ceremony at the grave of Patrick Whelan in Bohermore Cemetery. The wreath-laying and unveiling of the commemorative stone will be jointly led by the Cathaoirleach of the County of Galway and the Mayor of the City of Galway.

Tar éis nochtadh na cloiche comórtha, beidh searmanas fleascleagain ann ag uaigh Patrick Whelan i Reilig an Bhóthair Mhóir. Is iad Cathaoirleach Chontae na Gaillimhe agus Méara Chathair na Gaillimhe i gcomhar le chéile a stiúrfaidh an searmanas fleascleagain agus nochtadh na cloiche comórtha.
