Mountmellick was among the towns around Laois that marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
The town's World War I Research & Commemoration committee organised a fundraising event to pay outstanding costs of Mountmellick's memorial outside the town's library.
The fundraiser featured a screening of ‘Journey’s End’ the highly rated 2018 film about the war, on Thursday November 8 in the Balcony Cinema.
On Friday, November 9 in The Forum Hostel there was a coffee morning to review Mountmellick’s part in the War.
On Sunday, November 11 wreaths were laid a the World War I memorial to mark Armistice Day. Later that day there was a spoken word evening of remembrance for those who served and lost their lives from the area.
Photographer Denis Byrne covered the November 11 wreath laying.
