From all of us, in and around Coppeen, to all of you, we wish you a very happy New Year. May this Centenary Year, 2020 be a memorable one for you for all the right reasons. 100 years ago, our War of Independence began. There followed some of the most turbulent years in our proud Nation’s history. Let us make sure to remember and commemorate these events in a proud, dignified and appropriate manner, paying homage to all of those people who served, fought and died during those troubled times.
Happy New Year to All!
