 Remberance Sunday, Fahan Presbyterian Church

Lawrence Binyon They shal not grow old, as we taht are left...

We traditionally hang a poppy wreath and take a minutes silence on Armistice Sunday in November each year. Our minister reads the lines of Lawrence Binyon

"They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old:
 Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
