Leis an ngníomh siombalach seo iarrfar orainn cuimhneamh, machnamh agus athshamhlú a dhéanamh le linn 2016 agus sinn ag amharc siar ar 1916. Gheobhaidh 2,016 theach i gContae Shligigh coinneal lena cur i bhfuinneog dá dteach ag 19.16 uair an chloig ar an 1 Eanáir 2016.

The Sligo 2016 Flame will also to be lit in City Hall Sligo at 19.16 hours. This flame will stay lit for the year and will be displayed around Sligo during key events and ceremonies. The Sligo Irish Diaspora abroad will light a candle at the same time and post images online in a specially created forum. Simultaneously, bonfires and floodlights will illuminate the Sligo landscape. The event will be replicated on Saturday, December 31, 2016, encouraging people to connect and reflect on the year just finished.
